Htop

Htop is a text-mode, interactive process viewer for Linux run via console/ssh, and to install htop on Linux is a pretty simple task. Among other things, htop allows you the following:

  • Quickly view key performance statistics such as CPU(multi-core layout), Memory and Swap usage Details.
  • Scroll the process list vertically and horizontally to see all processes and complete command lines.
  • Kill processes by selection rather than entering process number, use mouse to select list items.
  • PuTTY (the Telnet and SSH client) can be used for the interface at client.

How to install Htop

You can easily install htop on CentOS 6.x using yum, but first you need to install the rpmforge package repository applicable to your architecture 32bit or 64bit (if already not installed) by using the following commands:

Install RPM for CentOS 6.x

32-BIT

wget http://pkgs.repoforge.org/rpmforge-release/rpmforge-release-0.5.3-1.el6.rf.i686.rpm
