The ProTop Real-Time monitor can be thought of as a tower of lego blocks: you can add and remove sections (we call them data collectors) as you see fit. At startup, ProTop displays the "Dashboard" data collector, Table Activity, Index Activity and User IO Activity.
The contents of the title bar (top 2 lines) are explained below and each data collector is described in its own help page.
Left Side of the Title Bar
Friendly name of the database
Auto / OnDemand: - Data can be refreshed automatically or on-demand.
Type of sampling - Interval - delta between samples, Cumulative - since ProTop started, or Raw - since the database server started.
Rate / Summary - When Rate is chosen and if appropriate, data is divided by the seconds in the interval. When Summary is chosen, the raw numbers are shown and no division takes place. For example, Logical Reads can be displayed as "per second" or as the raw number, whereas Connections (the current number of database connections) is always the sample value, regardless of the value of this field.
Data Method (internal)
Data Rows - the number of rows on the screen
Data Bytes (internal)
Fetch Time - the execution time to gather the data
