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':
