It shouldn't be too hard to modify top to collapse processes with the
same name into a single line.  Possibly more effort than it's worth for
what you want, though.  Have you tried pressing the 'i' key when top is
running?  It toggles the display of idle processes.  (getty is generally
idle.)  This can save a lot of screen real estate.
