At that point. I have here some mor scriptie... :)

It does TOP. But without users :) How to get them without "user, who..."
But it provides load, mem, swap, processes and a process list.
OK it is (!) sometimes slow. but a refresh every 5 sec. is ok.
The Script itself is about 1k and it uses uptime (another scriptie) which is
400b so 1.5 k is complete top.

The process list should be sorted. But it doens't work (Hey Michele :) )
ps aux -OC is the same as ps aux --sort:pcpu
Should be sorted with %CPU line. But that doesn't seem to be working :(

OK Bye.
