There's a standard gotcha about the "top" utility: It puts a machine
under significant load while running. Picture a shared *ix host having
apparent performance problems: A dozen logged-in users simultaneously
launch "top" and bring it to its knees.
Tip: The "M" keystroke while top is running causes it to re-sort
processes into order of memory usage, as opposed to CPU usage.
