Linux : Glances – An Eyeball On Your System

glances-white-256I found this at and it is a tool I wished I knew about long ago.  Glances is a System Monitoring tool for Linux that allows you to watch all the important stuff in real-time.  You can download the source or install it through most major package management systems.

For Ubuntu, enter:

sudo apt-get install glances

When the install is done, type:

sudo glances

You will see a dashboard of all the metrics you should see in the TOP command but you also get network and cpu usage as well.  Check it out over at:
