add minor console monitoring utilities to base image (htop, bmon, iotop, atop)
Closed, ResolvedPublicFEATURE REQUEST


I was never really a fan of top for system monitoring on a console, and usually bring in htop as a replacement.


htop is relatively pain free to add

iftop may or may not have as much utility, for keeping an eye on throughput/connection endpoints on various network interfaces

iotop may be of use on monitoring local filesystem access (say, if squid is misbehaving)

@Asteroza usually htop only gives you a snapshot about the current system behavior/missbehavior. For this kind of thing I use SNMP monitoring with libreNMS so I get a detailed graph + backlog about the routers utilisation.

Big fan of HTop here :)
@dmbaturin do we have iftop like thing somewhere already? (to see traffic usage)

personally I prefer bmon to iftop
