Recently, during reading information in The Art of Command Line repository, I’ve found Glances, which is a cross-platform curses-based system monitoring tool written in Python. It’s light, but very powerful tool, which allows to monitor your system. Moreover, it’s open-source.
Before you install Glances, you need Python, PyPI and Psutil. If you want to run Glaces as a web server, you also need to install Bottle.
To monitor temperature of your CPU, install Pysensors.
You can install the most important packages with the following command:
and then install Glances
After that, just run glances
If you want to run Glances as a web server, type:
open the following address in your favorite web browser:
http://<your_ip>:61208/ and replace
<your_ip> with appropriate value.
If you just want to check it locally, you can use this address:
