            Can be both. top can be installed or depends on it's age I believe. The thing about Solaris is it has very good tools to identify performance problems.

              top is in distribution as well. IIRC top is part even of the minimal installation.
              prstat is IMO bettere (especially on agregatin processes asross zones/projects/users/groups but that is another story.

                Well it's not on any of the solaris boxed I've had to log into over the years

                  this operating system that was once exciting during the Sun Microsystems days
                  Umm, nope... I used Solaris during Sun Microsystems' days and was very unimpressed with it. Even in the old days, Linux was far and away ahead of Solaris in terms of usability in my opinion. A base Solaris install had nothing but a crap C compiler that was only useful for bootstrapping a proper gcc compiler. Which you needed right away so you could finally compile all the normal tools you needed to make the machine usable. Whereas Linux usually came with gcc out of the box, and you rarely had to compile anything other than your own software or if you just wanted to run the bleeding edge latest of something.

                    Are you being sarcastic here, or is there something genuinely neat about Solaris's fan speed? What's so good about it? I never noticed anything special about their fan speed back in the day.
