// ContainerTop handles `docker top` client requests.
// Future considerations:
// -- Windows users are far more familiar with CPU% total.
// Further, users on Windows rarely see user/kernel CPU stats split.
// The kernel returns everything in terms of 100ns. To obtain
// CPU%, we could do something like docker stats does which takes two
// samples, subtract the difference and do the maths. Unfortunately this
// would slow the stat call down and require two kernel calls. So instead,
// we do something similar to linux and display the CPU as combined HH:MM:SS.mmm.
// -- Perhaps we could add an argument to display "raw" stats
// -- "Memory" is an extremely overloaded term in Windows. Hence we do what
// task manager does and use the private working set as the memory counter.
// We could return more info for those who really understand how memory
// management works in Windows if we introduced a "raw" stats (above).
