Glances is a cross-platform curses-based monitoring tool written in Python.

It uses the psutil library to get information from your system.

Requirements

  • python >= 2.6 (tested with version 2.6, 2.7, 3.2, 3.3, 3.4)
  • psutil >= 0.5.1 (recommended version >= 2.0.0)
  • setuptools

Optional dependencies:

  • jinja2 (for HTML output)
  • pysensors (for HW monitoring support) [Linux-only]
  • hddtemp (for HDD temperature monitoring support)
  • batinfo (for battery monitoring support) [Linux-only]

Installation

PyPI: The simple way

Glances is on PyPI. To install, simply use pip:

pip install Glances

Note: Python headers are required to install psutil. For example, on Debian/Ubuntu you need to install first the python-dev package.

To upgrade Glances to the latest version:

pip install --upgrade Glances

Linux

At the moment, packages exist for the following distributions:

  • Arch Linux
  • Debian (Testing/Sid)
  • Fedora/CentOS/RHEL
  • Gentoo
  • Slackware
  • Ubuntu (13.04+)
  • Void Linux

So you should be able to install it using your favorite package manager.

FreeBSD

To install the binary package:

# pkg_add -r py27-glances

Using pkgng:
