So here goes
This was asked at Capgemini
How will you save the output of the TOP command in a file?
Use Top in batch mode
# top -b -n1 > filename.txt
The -b option is for batch mode and the -n option is for the number of iterations in this case 1.
You can use the -d to option to to specify the time between two iterations
# top -b -n1 -d10 > filename.txt
The delay is 10 seconds
