Getting top to show usage in human readable format

+4 votes

On CentOS, top shows per process memory using in kb or mb. On Fedora 19, top shows per process memory usage by the byte. Is there an option or setting to make Fedora's top (from procps-ng) work like CentOS' (from procps).

In the past I used to think why Firefox can be slow when it's loading pages. Now I've found something that makes a noticeable difference: the addon "ghostery" that blocks "trackers," which their website defines as
page elements - scripts, pixels, iframes, etc. - that are normally invisible to the user. What "trackers" seem to be all about is marketing, and apparently they've been wasting a lot of my time.

What's especially interesting to me is a list that shows the trackers that have been blocked for each website I visit. For example, the intro page for includes 20 such unwanted visitors with names like "Audience Science," "Dynamic Science," and "Scorecard Research."

I'm trying to convert my Tomboy notes from an old F12 system to Gnote on this CentOS 6 system.

What I have found buy googling so far:
- Tomboy notes used to be stored in $HOME/.tomboy
- Some Tomboy upgrade moved them to $HOME/.local/share/.tomboy
- Gnote stores its notes in $HOME/.local/share/gnote
- Gnote has a Tomboy note converter add-in

My Tomboy notes are in /home/steve/.tomboy so I had the old Tomboy system.
I have the Tomboy add-in installed in Gnote

I have tried copying my notes from $HOME/.tomboy to
$HOME/.local/share/gnote and I have also tried copying them to
$HOME/.local/share/tomboy but in either case I don't see them in gnote.

Do I have a directory name wrong or is there some action needed to start the conversion?

Write a function which can take a random JSON and transform the data into multiple line human readable title value pairs.

For example:

Given JSON

        university: 'Oxford',
        batch: '2019-2020',
        address: {
            street: '144 Main',
            city: 'London',
            country: 'UK',
            contact: {
                fax: 'XXXXXX',
                phone: 'YYYYY'
        students: [{
            name: 'Jon Doe',
            age: '22'
            name: 'Mike Wilson',
            age: '32'
            name: 'David',
            age: '28'


university: Oxford
batch: 2019-2020
address street: 144 Main

address country: UK

students 1 name: Jon Doe

When I use multi-home function to setup link between 2 fedora 18 hosts, I can not use sctp_sendmsg to send any message and return error "Invalid Parameters" . but the same program runs well in Centos 6.

And the most wired thing is when I run Server side in centos and run Client side in fedora, I have the problem, but everything is fine when I run client side in centos but run server side on fedora.

Does anyone has the same problem?
