If you’re working with Linux/MacOS terminal you’ve probably used the
top command to monitor processes and system resource usage.
top and its improved
htop are great for process
management, IMHO they lack the convenient dashboard-like view.
Today I learned about gtop fancy system monitoring dashboard for terminal.
$ npm install gtop -g
Start the process with
Use the following keys to sort the process table:
p: Process Id
c: CPU usage
m: Memory usage
gtopdoesn’t have a built-in kill process option, though there is a feature request for it.
For the above reason and others, I’d still use
htopfor server monitoring, if you don’t have any advanced monitoring solution.
