Solaris Common Desktop Environment: User's Guide

To Change the Sampling Interval

By default, Process Manager samples the workstation and updates the display every 30 seconds.

    To disable/enable the continuous sampling mode, choose Stop/Start from the Sample menu.

    If continuous sampling is on, you will see a Stop menu item on the Sample menu; otherwise the menu item will read Start.

    To change the interval between samples, type a number of seconds (up to 604800, that is, 14 days) in the Sample Every box.

    Press Return to make the new sampling frequency come into effect.

    To sample immediately, choose Now from the Sample menu.

    Process Manager samples and then updates the display.
