NAME         top

       tload - graphic representation of system load average

SYNOPSIS         top

       tload [options] [tty]

DESCRIPTION         top

       tload prints a graph of the current system load average to the
       specified tty (or the tty of the tload process if none is specified).

OPTIONS         top

       -s, --scale number
              The scale option allows a vertical scale to be specified for
              the display (in characters between graph ticks); thus, a
              smaller value represents a larger scale, and vice versa.

       -d, --delay seconds
              The delay sets the delay between graph updates in seconds.

       -h, --help
              Display this help text.

       -V, --version
              Display version information and exit.

FILES         top

       /proc/loadavg load average information

BUGS         top

       The -d delay option sets the time argument for an alarm(2); if -d 0
       is specified, the alarm is set to 0, which will never send the
       SIGALRM and update the display.
