+
+                <para><command>systemd-cgtop</command> shows the top
+                control groups of the local Linux control group
+                hierarchy, ordered by their CPU, memory and disk I/O load. The
+                display is refreshed in regular intervals (by default
+                every 1s), similar in style to
+                <citerefentry><refentrytitle>top</refentrytitle><manvolnum>1</manvolnum></citerefentry>.</para>
+
+                <para>Resource usage is only accounted for control
+                groups in the relevant hierarchy, i.e. CPU usage is
+                only accounted for control groups in the
+                <literal>cpuacct</literal> hierarchy, memory usage
+                only for those in <literal>memory</literal> and disk
+                I/O usage for those in
+                <literal>blkio</literal>. <citerefentry><refentrytitle>systemd</refentrytitle><manvolnum>1</manvolnum></citerefentry>
+                by default places all services in their own control
+                group in the <literal>cpuacct</literal> hierarchy, but
+                not in <literal>memory</literal> nor
+                <literal>blkio</literal>. If resource monitoring for
+                these resources is required it is recommended to add
+                <literal>blkio</literal> and <literal>memory</literal>
+                to the <varname>DefaultControllers=</varname> setting
+                in <filename>/etc/systemd/system.conf</filename> (see
+                <citerefentry><refentrytitle>systemd.conf</refentrytitle><manvolnum>5</manvolnum></citerefentry>
+                for details). Alternatively, it is possible to enable
+                resource accounting individually for services, by
+                making use of the <varname>ControlGroup=</varname>
+                option in the unit files (See

+
+                <para>To emphasize this: unless

+                are enabled for the services in question with either
