Equivalent command in AIX to "top" command in Linux?

Hi all,

I wondered if there is an equivalent command in AIX to the "top"
command in Linux.

"top provides an ongoing look at processor activity in real time.
It displays a listing of the most CPU-intensive tasks on the
system, and can provide an interactive interface for manipulating
processes. It can sort the tasks by CPU usage, memory usage
and runtime."

Thanks,

James

I think there is a "top" in the Linux Toolbox for AIX, but what you
really want is "nmon", written by Mr. Nigel Griffiths of IBM. A little
Googlemancy should get you a download link. Used by IBMers worldwide
for performance investigations. Does everything that top does and more.

Or (as the man said) use topas, which is already included on the AIX
installation media. bos.perf.tools if memory serves.

Cheers,
Menno

I totally agree with Patrick, but agree with Menno more! Nmon is a
great tool, especially the ability to create nice graphs to show
management :-)

However, please note that if you try to log a call with IBM based on
it's output they'll tell you it's not supported!

Need help with overriding generic in top level
Hello, I need help with this generic thing. I'm much more comfortable in verilog, and I do this a lot using 'parameter' and 'defparam'. Somehow I can't do the same thing in VHDL. I've simplified the problem to the code below: I have a lower level module, count_ud.vhd with generic=8. On a top level (top_count_bad), I instantiate two of count_ud.vhd, and I want to make one 8-bit counter, the other one 7-bit counter. Synplify gives me an error message for the 7-bit counter with the following message. @E: CD395 :"C:\PROJECTS\test\count_ud.vhd":38:22:38:3...

stopping matlab from displaying commands in a scri
Hi When you execute a script in MATLAB (I use version 6.5 on Windows), it usually prints the code/commands it is executing from the script in the command window. For example, if I have a "for" loop that has N iterations, it displays the internal commands N times. This makes the script very slow to run. Is there any way (by means of setting options etc) to tell MATLAB to not spew out the commands of the script onto the command window?
