No, top isn't furnished with Solaris. You can get a source distribution (http://sourceforge.net/projects/unixtop) and build your own copy, or get a pre-compiled copy from http://www.sunfreeware.com/

top does not come standard with Solaris 9, although you can easily install it by grabbing the Solaris package from http://sunfreeware.com/

However, Solaris does come with prstat, which is the Solaris equivalent of top and will give you more acurate results (although does give as much info as top)
