Linux: Add additional info about memory and swap when parsing top

I would like a few changes made to this:

1.
Instead of "memory" include:
memoryTotal
memoryUsed

2.
Instead of "swap" include:
swapTotal
swapUsed

Here you go:
top -b -1 | head -6 | awk '/load/   {print "\"load\":", $12}
                            /Tasks/ {print "\"tasksRunning\":", $4 ",";
                                     print "\"tasksSleeping\":", $6 ","
                                     print "\"tasksStopped\":", $8 ","
                                     print "\"tasksZombie\":", $10 ","}
                            /Cpu/   {sub("%us,"," ",$0);sub("%sy,"," ",$0);sub("%wa,"," ",$0);
                                     print "\"cpu\":", $2+$3+$6 ","}
                            /Mem/   {gsub("k "," ",$0); print "\"memoryTotal\":", $2 ","
                                                        print "\"memoryUsed\":", $4 ","}
                            /Swap/  {gsub("k "," ",$0); print "\"swapTotal\":", $2 ","

To get all output into one line try
echo $(
top -b -1 | head -6 | awk '/load/   {print "\"load\":", $12}
                            /Tasks/ {print "\"tasksRunning\":", $4 ",";
                                     print "\"tasksSleeping\":", $6 ","
