Thanks for the perl script, Kirk. I've been putting one together myself using XML::Simple and the format command, though I've not yet fully deciphered the dtd.

To Andreas: thanks for issue tracker ticket numbers. The analogy of ps -o was exactly what I trying to say. As an earlier poster pointed out, that sort of feature will definitely prevent a number of us re-inventing the wheel! That said, my main bugbear was the FQDN, which from a previous thread appears to be a bug in 6.0u1.

The qstat RFE seems to have generated most responses - I've only seen one request for top/prstat style output to be added. Any chance I can add it as an RFE, too?
