Application: htop

Problem: Memory Usage

I had a recent need to examine the memory usage of each process running on a Ubuntu Server (12.04).

I found a program called HTOP - it is just an extended top application with colors and what not - however it allows you to group each process by category (things like memory usage, cpu usage and cpu cycles taken.  It also gives you a graphs of CPU, Memory and Swap usage.


sudo apt-get install htop
