You might not have heard of nmon, but it's pretty neat and pretty handy. It's so handy that I'm not really sure where to put this article. It's a terminal thing, so I guess I'll put it in this sub-forum.


It might seem a bit confusing at first, but it's really not. It's actually easy to use and I show you a way to get started quickly.

Very neat monitor. Thanks. To run it in a single terminal, it's possible to just toggle h (help) on and off to show the keys that enable the various outputs.

Yup. I mention that. Well, I mention the ? which is the same thing.

I figure most folks will find the dual screen method a good way to get started. I don't really know - but it seemed like a good idea at the time.

And, yup. It's a great monitoring tool. It's not spoken of often, so I figured I'd write an article. I'm still in the process of doing a 'clean install', adding applications that I'd normally think of as default but really aren't defaults but seem that way because I always just restore from a backup.

Glad ya liked it. It is indeed handy. I'm surprised that it's not more well known, as it's fairly easy to use once you get used to it.
