OPTIONS         top

       -s, --scale number
              The scale option allows a vertical scale to be specified
              for the display (in characters between graph ticks); thus,
              a smaller value represents a larger scale, and vice versa.

       -d, --delay seconds
              The delay sets the delay between graph updates in seconds.

       0 is specified, the alarm is set to 0, which will never send the
       SIGALRM and update the display.
