      It has lots of info in just one screen. It's even better than htop. Nonetheless I have both installed, just in case.

      dadoomer Gotop has most of the features of htop with an easier-to-use interface, and among the htop-like monitoring tools I've tried gotop's TUI is the most robust and consistent.
