  • How to test my code?
    I am enrolled in Udacity's C++ developer nanodegree and have a project where I need to essentially recreate htop. It's essentially like a "task-manager" tool for Linux.
  • What unit does htop use for memory usage?
    I had looked at the htop code previously — there's been lots of previous questions on this subreddit about "what is the memory measurement actually measuring?" — which meant that I'd already seen the MemoryMeter code. And within that code, the call to Meter_humanUnit stood out.

    Those are CLI applications. Top left neofetch, top right is top, which every ? unix machine has access to and bottom left is cmatrix. Instead of top, you also can try vtop or htop.

  • "Something" is using - or maybe just sitting on - approx 7 out 12 gigs of RAM. But no resource monitor will tell what this "something" is. It just tells me most of my RAM is used. Could this be ZFS? How do you even diagnose this? | 2021-04-18

  • I made a terminal utility to monitor some system stats. Was wondering if you guys know of anything better or if I should continue dev work on it since we need it? | 2021-04-06
    Htop - This ones an OG at this point, I still use it, and it functions more as a task manager than a monitor, but I use it for both.
  • The Server that might be TrueNAS Scale | 2021-03-24
    After generally confirming the memory was working as intended I ran a CPU stress test for an hour or so a few times. Watching all 24 cores light up in htop was thrilling.

  • Do any history logs last over reboots? Diagnosing weird behaviour.
    For example, to display the utilisation of the main memory or the CPU (and thus, in the best case, to find the cause), you can use the tool htop. You may need to install this tool, as it will probably not be part of the default installation of Ubuntu (at least I assume so).
