    top output all cpus without user-action

    Every hour I got cron running:

    top -d 99 -n 1 -b > /..../server_top_output.txt
    For a tool that animates server stats. The problem is it's only spitting out one CPU, not the 8 CPU's on my virtual ubuntu server.

    When in top myself, I hit `1` and it reveals all 8.. but I can't figure out how to get it into my cronjob command.

    Any help or guidance would be greatly appreciated.

    Get top the way you want it (i.e press '1' top show all CPU's), and then press 'W' (Shift + w) to write a configuration file. I tested it with your command and it works.

    wrt: ~/.toprc
    I use this in mine:
    RCfile for "top with windows"        # shameless braggin'
    Id:a, Mode_altscr=0, Mode_irixps=1, Delay_time=3.000, Curwin=0
    Def    fieldscur=AEHIOQTWKNMbcdfgjplrsuvyzX
        winflags=30137, sortindx=13, maxtasks=20
        summclr=1, msgsclr=1, headclr=3, taskclr=1
    Job    fieldscur=ABcefgjlrstuvyzMKNHIWOPQDX
        winflags=62777, sortindx=0, maxtasks=0
        summclr=6, msgsclr=6, headclr=7, taskclr=6
    Mem    fieldscur=ANOPQRSTUVbcdefgjlmyzWHIKX
        winflags=62777, sortindx=13, maxtasks=0
        summclr=5, msgsclr=5, headclr=4, taskclr=5
    Usr    fieldscur=ABDECGfhijlopqrstuvyzMKNWX
        winflags=62777, sortindx=4, maxtasks=0
        summclr=3, msgsclr=3, headclr=2, taskclr=3
    seems to show me all CPUs and shows the full path of each command.

    Hope that's helpful.
