Install gotop - A graphical terminal system monitor

gotop is a system monitor that runs through the terminal for Linux and macOS. The software is inspired by gtop and vtop, but while these two utilities use Node.js, gotop is written in Go.

Installation

There are several ways, see below, the options

  • Debian, Ubuntu and Linux Mint
wget https://github.com/cjbassi/gotop/releases/download/3.0.0/gotop_3.0.0_linux_amd64.deb
sudo dpkg -i gotop_3.0.0_linux_amd64.deb
  • RedHat, CentOS e Fedora
wget https://github.com/cjbassi/gotop/releases/download/3.0.0/gotop_3.0.0_linux_amd64.rpm
sudo rpm -ivh gotop_3.0.0_linux_amd64.rpm
  • Arch Linux via AUR (gotop, gotop-bin, ou gotop-git)
  • FreeBSD
pkg install gotop

Or for any distro, download with wget

wget https://github.com/cjbassi/gotop/releases/download/3.0.0/gotop_3.0.0_linux_amd64.tgz

or with Go itself if you have installed

go get github.com/cjbassi/gotop

Unzip the TGZ

tar zxvf gotop_3.0.0_linux_amd64.tgz

You can already run with the command: ./gotop and if you want it to be executed via command, use your personal dir without sudo, that’s how I did it!

mkdir -p ~/.local/bin
mv gotop ~/.local/bin/
# If this directory is not your PATH, include
echo 'PATH="${PATH}:$HOME/.local/bin/"' >> ~/.bashrc
source ~/.bashrc
gotop

See help for key shortcuts: gotop --help
