What is Glances?
Glances is a cross-platform monitoring tool which aims to present a large amount of monitoring information through a curses or Web based interface. The information dynamically adapts depending on the size of the user interface.
It can also work in client/server mode. Remote monitoring could be done via terminal, Web interface or API (XML-RPC and RESTful). Stats can also be exported to files or external time/value databases.
Glances is written in Python and uses libraries to grab information from your system. It is based on an open architecture where developers can add new plugins or exports modules.

Nicer feel than htop Could not use procexp (linux process explorer) because project have not been updated for a year (last was june 2016) and my system can't install some obscure dependency
its cli based and works on windows. exactly what i googled and looked for.
I like Glances because it has more visible information

Small footprint with a lot more information than top or htop. I keep this running all the time in a terminal window.
The docker plugin is nice because it helps you focus just on containers. Network mode is useful when ad hoc stats on a server are useful
