comment Check what process is spiking the average load with atop
This depends on the version. I have edited the question accordingly.

comment Using sed to insert latex commands around headers of a document
That is terser, but I tend towards clearer answers when answering questions unix.SE. IMHO they are more useful. Many Unix users are not familiar with awk, and they appreciate something they can easily understand (and maybe adapt) rather than some obscure recipe.

Yes, I added the links to the answer two days ago. ;-) See here: nico.schottelius.org/software/gpm/archives. You have tarballs of the latest versions.

Thanks, @slm. I am a bit confused as well, and unsure whether my answer was useful or not...

comment Check what process is spiking the average load with atop
I am not sure I understand. My answer is about the raw file produced by atop, not about atop's interactive mode.

comment Top “id” is using 50-99% of CPU
That is a surprising name for a process. Can you post a screenshot of the output of top (pressing c so that top shows the full command line)? Maybe you can also post the output of ps auxww |head and/or pstree.

comment Take copy of TTY0 text
gpm allows you to copy and paste any text currently on screen. If the text has scrolled off the screen you can usually get it back with Shift + PageUp (unless you have switched to another TTY in the meantime, in which case whatever flowed up-and-out of the screen is usually lost).

Note that /dev/vcs1, /dev/vcs2, etc, only contain the current content of the virtual console, i.e. only one screen worth of characters.
