NAME

       atoprc - atop/atopsar related rcfile

DESCRIPTION

       This manual page documents the rcfile of the atop and atopsar commands.
       These commands can be used to monitor the system and process load on  a
       Linux system.

       The  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

       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 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', 'f', '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.

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

       cpucritperc
           The busy  percentage  considered  critical  for  a  processor  (see
           section  COLORS  in  the  man-page  of  the  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 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  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  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  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
           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  atop  command).  When this value is zero, no line coloring for
           `almost critical' is performed.

       atopsarflags
           A list of default flags for 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.

       An example of the /etc/atoprc or ~/.atoprc file:

               flags         Aaf
               interval      5
               username
               procname
               maxlinecpu    4
               maxlinedisk   10
               maxlineintf   5
               cpucritperc   80
               almostcrit    90
               atopsarflags  CMH
               ownprocline   PID:50 VGROW:40 RGROW:45 COMMAND-LINE:50
               ownpagline    PAGSCAN:3 BLANKBOX:0 PAGSWIN:3 PAGSWOUT:7

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

OWN DEFINITION OF OUTPUT LINE

       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 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 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':
