NAME         top

SYNOPSIS         top

       dump-acct [-r|--reverse] [-R|--raw] [-n|--num recs] [--byte-swap]
       [--format] [--ahz freq] [-h|--help] [files]

DESCRIPTION         top

       The dump-acct command transforms the output file from the accton
       format to the human-readable format: one record per line.  Each
       record consists of severald fields which are separated by character
       "|" (the meaning of concreate field depends on the version of kernel
       package - with which the accton file was created).

OPTIONS         top

       The following options are supported:

       -r, --reverse
              Print the output in reverse order.

       -R, --raw
              The records will be printed without any parsing.

       -n, --num NUMRECS
              Display only the first NUMRECS number of records.

              Swap the bytes (relative to your system's native byte order)
              in --raw output.

              Set output format with --raw option.

       --ahz FREQ
              Set the AHZ (platform dependent frequency in Hertz) to FREQ.

       -h, --help
              Print a help message and the default location of the process
              accounting file and exit.
