I was reading in this document:

http://communities.vmware.com/docs/DOC-9279

that I could get a display like this:

'+' means busy, '-' means idle.
(1) PCPU 0:   +++++----- (%50)
    PCPU 1:   -----+++++ (%50)
    Core 0:   ++++++++++ (%100)
(2) PCPU 0:   +++++----- (%50)
    PCPU 1:   +++++----- (%50)
    Core 0:   +++++----- (%50)
(3) PCPU 0:   +++++----- (%50)
    PCPU 1:   ---+++++-- (%50)
    Core 0:   ++++++++-- (%80)

Open in new window



But I cant figure out the command to display that

What command sequence do I have to do to get this ?

Thanks

It's an illustration, in the document.

"Let's use a few examples to illustrate this"

commands in esxtop are

Esxtop: top for ESX

These single-character commands are available:

^L      - redraw screen
space   - update display
h or ?  - help; show this text
q       - quit

Interactive commands are:

fF      Add or remove fields
oO      Change the order of displayed fields
s       Set the delay in seconds between updates
#       Set the number of instances to display
W       Write configuration file ~/.esxtop50rc
k       Kill a world

Switch display:
        c:cpu           i:interrupt     m:memory        n:network
        d:disk adapter  u:disk device   v:disk VM       p:power mgmt
