Hi, I am using CentOS 7. How can I monitor processes and server resources? Thank you very much

Dear Frank, 


By default, you can use the ‘’top’’ command to monitor the processes and server resources.  But to reach a perfect and certain conclusion, you are recommended to use ‘’htop’’ command. It should be installed first. So, run:


yum install -y epel-release  

Then, to view extra packages for Enterprise Linux, use the following command:

yum repolist

Finally, run the command below to install htop

yum -y install htop  

Good Luck.
