htop is an open source interactive and real time process monitoring application similar to the venerable top utility. With htop, you can scroll the list vertically and horizontally to see all processes and their full command lines.
Tasks related to processes (killing, renicing) can be done without entering their PIDs.
Unlike top, htop provides a full list of processes running, instead of the top resource-consuming processes. htop uses color and gives visual information about processor, swap and memory status.
This application uses the ncurses library.
