Checking multiple systems with command "Top" using a Linux Script

I am using the script below to check systems using the command top, but since Top requires "q" to terminate, it fails.

Is there a line I can put in the script to say q?

Here is the output I get:

=====================================================================
Host ops1corp at IP 192.168.1.236 is running the following services
=====================================================================
TERM environment variable not set.
 
=====================================================================
Host ops2corp at IP 192.168.1.237 is running the following services
=====================================================================
TERM environment variable not set.
 
=====================================================================
Host www1stg at IP 192.168.1.238 is running the following services
=====================================================================
TERM environment variable not set.

#!/bin/bash
 
# loop that checks each system in iprange specified
for i in $(seq 236 238)
do
  ip=192.168.1.$i
  host=$(ssh $ip -C hostname 2>&1)
  echo " "
  echo "====================================================================="
  echo "Host $host at IP $ip is running the following services"
  echo "====================================================================="
  ssh $ip "top"
done > topcheckfile 2>&1

as per
man top
use
top -n 1

This will run top for one iteration and stop it.

Thank shakoush.

However, I still get the error:

=====================================================================
Host ops1corp at IP 192.168.1.236 is running the following services
=====================================================================
TERM environment variable not set.

Any thoughts on why it says that and not the output of top?

I got to work using this small change: "top -bn 1"
#!/bin/bash
 
# loop that checks each system in iprange specified
for i in $(seq 236 238)
do
  ip=192.168.1.$i
  host=$(ssh $ip -C hostname 2>&1)
  echo " "
  echo "======================================================================"
  echo "Host $host at IP $ip is running the following services"
  echo "======================================================================"
  ssh $ip "top -bn 1"
done > topreport 2>&1
 
# manipulate file 'report_file' here...
