sudo apt-get install htop
Users often deploy
htop in cases where Unix
top does not provide enough information about the system’s processes.
htop is also popularly used interactively as a system monitor. Compared to
top, it provides a more convenient, visual, cursor-controlled interface for sending signals to processes.
htop is written in the C programming language using the ncurses library. Its name is derived from the original author’s first name, as a nod to
pinfo, an info-replacement program that does the same.
