    ask about top command


    Hi All,

    Sometimes i confused about linux top command. Generally, i know that its command provide me some information about cpu load, memory usage, and uptime. But do you have any links/information that can explain the usage of linux top command for detail ?

    Maybe about what is the maximum load of the cpu ? or if we type top on our linux box, there will be two cpu percentage but why the percentage is different between them ? or what is zombie and sleeping process and how the process become on those state ?

    Thanks before

    Hi and welcome to the forum.

    The manual for top has a lot of info that may help you. Run a terminal and enter the command "man top".

    The only option I can think about if you need images is to search for "linux top command" on google. There are several articles in the results, that may be of interest to you.
