    top is one of those special applications that depends on the OS version
    and architecture. In a multi-platform environment, you'll need a
    version for each OS release and each processor type. Not a problem if
    you're running Solaris 9 on sun4u only.

    To answer your question, you'll need a specific version for Solaris 7.

    top is not installed by default on any version of Solaris, but later
    versions do include "prstat" which is very similar.

    go to www.blastwave.org and download/install (as root) pkg-get package.

    once the binary is installed, type :

    # pkg-get -a

    to check that pkg-get is properly configured, and that "top" package
    is available somewhere.

    If yes for all, then type :

    # pkg-get install top

    and then... "top" package will be installed auto-magically in /opt/csw.

    The use of pkg-get simplifies administration of common open-source
    applications.

    ISTR that Casper Dik modified top to reduce platform specific problems.
    The lat time I compiled a copy, it ran on all the machines I could find
    without any problem.

    In Solaris 2.x, there never was a need to have more than one
    binary for SPARC, except that you need a 64 bit one for 64 bit
    kernels. This was mostly because the proces information was gleaned
    from /proc and all the rest is the same across platforms.
    (An older version of top hardcoded the pagesize, that was the only
    platform dependent problem).

    Around when 2.6 came out we converted it to use kstats and not
    /dev/*mem interfaces; 2.5 may have been the first release with
    sufficient kstats available; only maxpid is still read from the
    kernel directly, all the rest is from /dev/kstat and /proc.

    (The net effect is that an unprivileged user can run "top" on Solaris 2.6
    and later, missing only maxpid)
