Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 182606
rsh MACHINE top does not work
Last modified: 2007-11-30 17:07:23 EST
On an x86 Red Hat Enterprise Linux AS release 4 (Nahant Update 2)
using "top" from procps-3.2.3-8.2 doing
rsh REMOTE_MACHINE top
does not work, it prints an error saying
TERM environment variable not set.
This kind of usage is a very convenient way to check the status of a remote
rsh REMOTE_MACHINE top -b -n 1
works, but that is too verbose, top should be able to determine that is not
running on an interactive terminal when run from rsh, so it should not ask for
TERM to be set, and just do the the equivalent of -b -n 1
On all other OSes that I know of rsh top just works, and system administrators
are used to this command.
I don't think this is an urgen problem that should be fixed by errata update.
Please, use the official Red Hat Inc. support
(http://www.redhat.com/apps/support/) if you still think that this issue should
be fixed. The bugzilla is not right way for your RHEL requests. Thanks.
