一. TOP前五行统计信息


1. 第一行是任务队列信息

同 uptime 命令的执行结果:

[root@localhost ~]# uptime

13:22:30 up 8 min, 4 users, load average: 0.14, 0.38, 0.25


2. 第二、三行为进程和CPU的信息


3. 第四五行为内存信息。


二. 进程信息

 top 的man 命令解释如下:

Listed below are top's available fields. They are always associated with the letter shown, regardless of the position you may have established for them with the 'o' (Order fields) interactive command.Any field is selectable as the sort field, and you control whether they are sorted high-to-low or low-to-high. For additional information on sort provisions see topic 3c. TASK Area Commands.

a: PID -- Process Id

The task's unique process ID, which periodically wraps, though never restarting at zero.

b: PPID -- Parent Process Pid

The process ID of a task's parent.

c: RUSER -- Real User Name

The real user name of the task's owner.

d: UID -- User Id

The effective user ID of the task's owner.

e: USER -- User Name

The effective user name of the task's owner.

f: GROUP -- Group Name

The effective group name of the task's owner.

g: TTY -- Controlling Tty

The name of the controlling terminal. This is usually the device (serial port, pty, etc.) from which the process was started, and which it uses for input oroutput. However, a task need not be associated with a terminal, in which case you'll see '?' displayed.

h: PR -- Priority

The priority of the task.

i: NI -- Nice value

The nice value of the task. A negative nice value means higher priority, whereas a positive nice value means lower priority. Zero in this field simply means priority will not be adjusted in determining a task's dispatchability.

j: P -- Last used CPU (SMP)

A number representing the last used processor. In a true SMP environment this will likely change frequently since the kernel intentionally uses weak affinity. Also, the very act of running top may break this weak affinity and cause more processes to change CPUs more often (because of the extra demand for cpu time).

k: %CPU -- CPU usage

The task's share of the elapsed CPU time since the last screen update, expressed as a percentage of total CPU time. In a true SMP environment, if 'Irix mode' is Off, top will operate in 'Solaris mode' where a task's cpu usage will be divided by the total number of CPUs. You toggle 'Irix/Solaris' modes with the 'I' interactive command.

l: TIME -- CPU Time

Total CPU time the task has used since it started. When 'Cumulative mode' is On, each process is listed with the cpu time that it and its dead children has used. You toggle 'Cumulative mode' with 'S', which is a command-line option and an interactive command. See the 'S' interactive command for additional information regarding this mode.

m: TIME+ -- CPU Time, hundredths

The same as 'TIME', but reflecting more granularity through hundredths of a sec ond.

n: %MEM -- Memory usage (RES)

A task's currently used share of available physical memory.

o: VIRT -- Virtual Image (kb)

The total amount of virtual memory used by the task. It includes all code, data and shared libraries plus pages that have been swAPPed out. (Note: you can define the STATSIZE=1 environment variable and the VIRT will be calculated from the /proc/#/state VmSize field.)


p: SWAP -- Swapped size (kb)

The swapped out portion of a task's total virtual memory image.

q: RES -- Resident size (kb)

The non-swapped physical memory a task has used.


r: CODE -- Code size (kb)

The amount of physical memory devoted to executable code, also known as the'text resident set' size or TRS.

s: DATA -- Data+Stack size (kb)

The amount of physical memory devoted to other than executable code, also known the 'data resident set' size or DRS.

t: SHR -- Shared Mem size (kb)

The amount of shared memory used by a task. It simply reflects memory that could be potentially shared with other processes.

u: nFLT -- Page Fault count

The number of major page faults that have occurred for a task. A page fault occurs when a process attempts to read from or write to a virtual page that is not currently present in its address space. A major page fault is when disk access is involved in making that page available.

v: nDRT -- Dirty Pages count

The number of pages that have been modified since they were last written to disk. Dirty pages must be written to disk before the corresponding physical memory location can be used for some other virtual page.

w: S -- Process Status

The status of the task which can be one of:

'D' = uninterruptible sleep

'R' = running

'S' = sleeping

'T' = traced or stopped

'Z' = zombie

Tasks shown as running should be more proPerly thought of as 'ready to run' --their task_struct is simply represented on the Linux run-queue. Even without a true SMP machine, you may see numerous tasks in this state depending on top's delay interval and nice value.

x: Command -- Command line or Program name

Display the command line used to start a task or the name of the associated program. You toggle between command line and name with 'c', which is both a command-line option and an interactive command. When you've chosen to display command lines, processes without a command line (like kernel threads) will be shown with only the program name in parentheses, as in this example: ( mdrecoveryd ) Either form of display is subject to potential truncation if it's too long to fit in this field's current width. That width depends upon other fields selected, their order and the current screen width.

Note: The 'Command' field/column is unique, in that it is not fixed-width. When displayed, this column will be allocated all remaining screen width (up to the maximum 512 characters) to provide for the potential growth of program names into command lines.

y: WCHAN -- Sleeping in Function

Depending on the availability of the kernel link map ('System.map'), this field will show the name or the address of the kernel function in which the task is currently sleeping. Running tasks will display a dash ('-') in this column.

Note: By displaying this field, top's own working set will be increased by over 700Kb. Your only means of reducing that overhead will be to stop and restart top.

z: Flags -- Task Flags

This column represents the task's current scheduling flags which are expressed in hexadecimal notation and with zeros suppressed. These flags are officially documented in <linux/sched.h>. Less formal documentation can also be found on the 'Fields select' and 'Order fields' screens.


2.1 用快捷键更改显示内容。

(1)更改显示内容通过 f键可以选择显示的内容。

按 f 键之后会显示列的列表,按 a-z 即可显示或隐藏对应的列,最后按回车键确定。


按小写的 a-z 可以将相应的列向右移动,而大写的 A-Z 可以将相应的列向左移动。最后按回车键确定。

按大写的 F 或 O 键,然后按 a-z 可以将进程按照相应的列进行排序。而大写的 R 键可以将当前的排序倒转。


三. 命令使用

详细内容可以参考MAN 帮助文档。这里列举部分内容:


top [-] [d] [p] [q] [c] [C] [S] [n]


d: 指定每两次屏幕信息刷新之间的时间间隔。当然用户可以使用s交互命令来改变之。

p: 通过指定监控进程ID来仅仅监控某个进程的状态。


S: 指定累计模式

s : 使top命令在安全模式中运行。这将去除交互命令所带来的潜在危险。

i: 使top不显示任何闲置或者僵死进程。

c: 显示整个命令行而不只是显示命令名

h或者? : 显示帮助画面,给出一些简短的命令总结说明。

k :终止一个进程。系统将提示用户输入需要终止的进程PID,以及需要发送给该进程什么样的信号。一般的终止进程可以使用15信号;如果不能正常结束那就使用信号9强制结束该进程。默认值是信号15。在安全模式中此命令被屏蔽。


q: 退出程序。

r: 重新安排一个进程的优先级别。系统提示用户输入需要改变的进程PID以及需要设置的进程优先级值。输入一个正值将使优先级降低,反之则可以使该进程拥有更高的优先权。默认值是10。


s : 改变两次刷新之间的延迟时间。系统将提示用户输入新的时间,单位为s。如果有小数,就换算成ms。输入0值则系统将不断刷新,默认值是5 s。需要注意的是如果设置太小的时间,很可能会引起不断刷新,从而根本来不及看清显示的情况,而且系统负载也会大大增加。

f或者F :从当前显示中添加或者删除项目。

o或者O :改变显示项目的顺序。

l: 切换显示平均负载和启动时间信息。即显示影藏第一行

m: 切换显示内存信息。即显示影藏内存行

t : 切换显示进程和CPU状态信息。即显示影藏CPU行

c: 切换显示命令名称和完整命令行。 显示完整的命令。 这个功能很有用。

M : 根据驻留内存大小进行排序。


T: 根据时间/累计时间进行排序。

W: 将当前设置写入~/.toprc文件中。这是写top配置文件的推荐方法。
