htop & mytop - Interactive Activity Monitors
htop and mytop are programs similar to the standard top, but monitor in different ways and different functions. htop is an interactive process viewer for Linux. It is a text-mode application (for console or X terminals) and requires ncurses. Tested with Linux 2.4 and 2.6. Read on for info on mytop, an interactive monitor for MySQL.
mytop is a console-based (non-gui) tool for monitoring the threads and overall performance of a MySQL 3.22.x, 3.23.x, and 4.x server. It runs on most Unix systems (including Mac OS X) which have Perl, DBI, and Term::ReadKey installed. And with Term::ANSIColor installed you even get color. If you install Time::HiRes, you'll get good real-time queries/second stats. As of version 0.7, it even runs on Windows (somewhat).
