bashtop is an awesome resource monitor that shows usage and stats for processor, memory, disks, and network for Linux, macOS & FreeBSD/Unix.

Why do they write system monitors in Python? Do people realize that when I’m checking a system monitor that means my computer is running slowly, and I don’t need a super heavy Python script to make it run even slower?

how does this compare to top, htop, rtop, gotop, glances, etc?

edit: nvm, just tried it. very nice, it seems similar to glances, but I appreciate the addition of the graphical cpu display

bashtop looks a lot prettier than glances

So, in comparison to htop, would you consider it better?

out of the box, it provides a better overview than htop imo, but if you asked me to keep only one forever, I would pick htop or glances.

I must say I have similar feelings about this one. Thank you for your opinion.

I prefer using bpytop. It’s basically a python port of bashtop, in case maybe you don’t like stuff in bash (Not my case). https://github.com/aristocratos/bpytop

bashtop is great, I just wish it didn’t have such a large minimum size

That is actually true. It takes a lot of space in general and therefore I cannot use it on my secondary monitor in a way I would like to.
