rtop is a remote system monitor. It connects over SSH to a remote system and displays vital system metrics (CPU, disk, memory, network). No special software is needed on the remote system, other than an SSH server and working credentials.

Only Linux systems can be monitored, and most modern distros will work.

rtop is MIT-licensed and can be used anywhere with attribution.

rtop's home page has more information and screenshots!

build

rtop is written in go, and requires Go version 1.2 or higher. To build, go get it:

go get github.com/rapidloop/rtop

You should find the binary rtop under $GOPATH/bin when the command completes. There are no runtime dependencies or configuration needed.
