      I think this PPA doesn’t support latest version of Ubuntu or Linux Mint, however, you can install Glances from the default repositories with apt as shown:

      $ sudo apt-get install glances

    Hii Ravi you are right in case we want to check the cpu intensive process the glance command will show the critical option but if we use dual quad core processor then we can bind the process to core by taskset command..and else we use pidstat command..reply

    why not use top ?

    • Ravi Saive says:


      No doubt that top command is all time best monitoring tool for Linux, but glances provides some fancy look with some more features..that’s it nothing extra..
