Syntax:

>>-onstat-- -r--+------------------------+---------------------><
                +-seconds--other_options-+   
                '-other_options----------'   

Use the onstat -r seconds other_options command to specify the seconds to repeat the other option.

Use onstat -r other_options command to have the option repeat every five seconds, which allows the other options to be concatenated with the -r option, as in this example: onstat -rFh.

The onstat -r command can be used in both command mode and interactive mode, and can be useful for repeating command output to monitor system resource utilization.

Example output running the onstat -r command every five seconds
