top is good, but I don't think it comes by default with tru64. you can find
the source on the web though at http://www.groupsys.com/top/download.html.
you can also use ulimit (or limit in csh), but i don't know how useful it is
for your purposes. i usually use it to set my user data limit to the
maximum (hard limit).
