Hi,

etop uses tracing to collect it's data.
If you have activated tracing at the same it will most probably disturb etop.

The Erlang VM has powerful built-in tracing facilities intended for
troubleshooting
and profiling on live systems.
Tracing should never be activated or used by an application it self as
part of the
normal operation.
