I don’t know how many Top applications are in Linux. However MARKUS FEILNER AND SASCHA SPREITZER over at Linux Pro Magazine have evaluated all that they could and come up with a top ten for use to use.
As you might expect the original Top came in number one. I was surprised at the number of uses the other Tops came up with.
My favorite is PowerTOP since all that I use is a notebook. Occasionally it gets hot but the fan doesn’t come on. Maybe PowerTOP can help me with that!
Another one that I like is MyTop for MySQL. You can use MyTop to analyze what is going on with your MySQL database. There’s also PTop for PostGRE users.
Head over to their website and check out the article. You may find a Top that you really like!
