DO NOT INSTALL: I managed to actually crash my system with this (red LED on shutdown/reboot), so I removed it for now.

So: it turns out, BSD process accouting needs to be enabled for this to work reliably. This is not the case at least for the kernel on my device, Xperia 10.

The tool *can* be used, but it's easy to get unkillable processes and hanging services, prvernting a clean reboot. Therefore, I will not put up an RPM here.

If you want to use it, you'll have to get the RPM from the git repo below. Make sure you have the environment variable ATOPACCT set to empty string (ATOPACCT=""), then it works. 

Installs atop tool and systemd service.

NOTE: this is a beta release of this, suggestions on how to set up `/etc/atoprc` (for the cli tool) and `/etc/default/atop` (for the service) are very welcome.

About the Software:

Atop is an ASCII full-screen performance monitor for Linux that is capable of reporting the activity of all processes (even if processes have finished during the interval), daily logging of system and process activity for long-term analysis, highlighting overloaded system resources by using colors, etc. At regular intervals, it shows system-level activity related to the CPU, memory, swap, disks (including LVM) and network layers, and for every process (and thread) it shows e.g. the CPU utilization, memory growth, disk utilization, priority, username, state, and exit code.
