PCP-ATOPRC(5)                File Formats Manual               PCP-ATOPRC(5)

NAME         top

       atoprc - pcp-atop/pcp-atopsar related resource file

DESCRIPTION         top

       This manual page documents the resource file of the pcp-atop and pcp-
       atopsar commands.  These commands can be used to monitor the system
       and process load on a system.

       The pcp-atoprc file contains the default settings. These settings are
       read during startup, first from the system-wide rcfile /etc/atoprc
       and after that from the user-specific rcfile ~/.atoprc (so system-
       wide settings can be overruled by an individual user).  The options
       in both rcfiles are identical.

OPTIONS         top

       The rcfile contains keyword-value pairs, one on every line (blank
       lines and lines starting with a #-sign are ignored).
       The following keywords can be specified:

       flags
           A list of default flags for pcp-atop can be defined here. The
           flags which are allowed are 'g', 'm', 'd', 'n', 'u', 'p', 's',
           'c', 'v', 'C', 'M', 'D', 'N', 'A', 'a', 'y', 'f', 'F', 'G', 'R',
           '1' and 'x'.

       interval
           The default interval value in seconds.

       linelen
           The length of a screen line when sending output to a file or pipe
           (default 80).

       username
           The default regular expression for the users for which active
           processes will be shown.

       procname
           The default regular expression for the process names to be shown.

       maxlinecpu
           The maximum number of active CPU's that will be shown.

       maxlinelvm
           The maximum number of active logical volumes that will be shown.

       maxlinemdd
           The maximum number of active multiple devices that will be shown.

       maxlinedisk
           The maximum number of active disks that will be shown.

       maxlinenfsm
           The maximum number of NFS mounts that will be shown on an NFS
           client.

       maxlineintf
           The maximum number of active network interfaces that will be
           shown.

       maxlinecont
           The maximum number of active containers that will be shown.

       cpucritperc
           The busy percentage considered critical for a processor (see
           section COLORS in the man-page of the pcp-atop command).  This
           percentage is used to determine a weighted percentage for line
           coloring and sorting of active processes.  When this value is
           zero, no line coloring or automatic sorting is performed for this
           resource.

       dskcritperc
           The busy percentage considered critical for a disk (see section
           COLORS in the man-page of the pcp-atop command).  This percentage
           is used to determine a weighted percentage for line coloring and
           sorting of active processes.  When this value is zero, no line
           coloring or automatic sorting is performed for this resource.

       netcritperc
           The busy percentage considered critical for a network interface
           (see section COLORS in the man-page of the pcp-atop command).
           This percentage is used to determine a weighted percentage for
           line coloring and sorting of active processes.  When this value
           is zero, no line coloring or automatic sorting is performed for
           this resource.

       memcritperc
           The percentage considered critical for memory utilization (see
           section COLORS in the man-page of the pcp-atop command).  This
           percentage is used to determine a weighted percentage for line
           coloring and sorting of active processes.  When this value is
           zero, no line coloring or automatic sorting is performed for this
           resource.

       swpcritperc
           The occupation percentage considered critical for swap space (see
           section COLORS in the man-page of the pcp-atop command).  This
           percentage is used to determine a weighted percentage for line
           coloring and sorting of active processes.  When this value is
           zero, no line coloring or automatic sorting is performed for this
           resource.

       swoutcritsec
           The number of pages swapped out per second considered critical
           for for memory utilization (see section COLORS in the man-page of
           the pcp-atop command).  This threshold is used in combination
           with 'memcritperc' to determine a weighted percentage for line
           coloring and sorting of active processes.  When this value is
           zero, no line coloring or automatic sorting is performed for this
           resource.

       almostcrit
           A percentage of the critical percentage to determine if the
           resource is almost critical (see section COLORS in the man-page
           of the pcp-atop command).  When this value is zero, no line
           coloring for `almost critical' is performed.

       colorinfo
           Definition of color name for information messages (default:
           green).
           Allowed colors are: red green yellow blue magenta cyan black
           white.

       colorthread
           Definition of color name for thread-specific lines when using the
           'y' option (default: yellow).
           Allowed colors are: red green yellow blue magenta cyan black
           white.

       coloralmost
           Definition of color name for almost critical resources (default:

           Allowed colors are: red green yellow blue magenta cyan black
           white.

       pcp-atopsarflags
           A list of default flags for pcp-atopsar can be defined here. The
           flags that are allowed are 'S', 'x', 'C', 'M', 'H', 'a', 'A' and
           the flags to select one or more specific reports.

       The keywords 'ownprocline' and 'ownpagline' are explained in the
       subsequent section.

OWN DEFINITION OF OUTPUT LINE         top

       Via the rcfile it is possible to define the layout of the output
       lines yourself, i.e. you can define the layout of one line with
       process information with the keyword 'ownprocline' (to be selected
       with the key 'o' or the flag -o) and you can redefine all lines with
       system information.

       The layout of an output-line can be defined as follows (notice that
       this should be specified as one line in the rcfile):

          keyword   <columnid>:<prio> [<columnid>:<prio> ...]

       The columnid is the symbolic name of a column that should shown at
       this position in the output line.
       The prio is a positive integer value that determines which columns
       have precedence whenever not all specified columns fit into the
       current screen-width.  The higher value, the higher priority.
       The column-specifications should be separated by a space. The order
       in which columns have been specified is the order in which they will
       be shown, with respect to their priority (columns that do not fit,
       will be dropped dynamically).

       A special columnid for system lines is 'BLANKBOX'. This indicates
       that an empty column is required at this position. Also this special
       columnid is followed by a priority (usually low).

       The following definition can be specified for process information:

       ownprocline
           The columnid's are the names of the columns that are shown in the
           normal output of the process-related lines that are shown by pcp-
           atop such as 'PID', 'CMD', 'S', ....  The only exception is the
           special columnid 'SORTITEM' that is used to show one of the
           columns CPU%/DSK%/MEM%/NET%, depending on the chosen sort-
           criterium.
           An example of a user-defined process line:

               ownprocline   PID:20 PPID:10 SYSCPU:15 USRCPU:15 VGROW:14
               VSIZE:12 RGROW:14 RSIZE:12 ST:8 EXC:7 S:11 SORTITEM:18 CMD:20

       The following definitions are used internally by pcp-atop as the
       default system lines (you can redefine each of them in the rcfile as
       one line):

       ownsysprcline
           Redefinition of line labeled with 'PRC':
