I'm looking for a better alternative for top. Both top and Activity Monitor are highly limited with regards to features. In particular, I'm interested in the following features:
- Limit processes by name
- Send different kill-signals to a process interactively, i.e. select the process from the process list and send a signal
- Ability to show the entire command, not only the program name (as
top -cdoes on Linux)
- Show the status of each process
- Optional: On Linux, top also updates the command when displayed, i.e. if a process writes in it's own
argvduring runtime, the updated command will be shown.
Htop is not an option, as it is unstable on Mac OS and only a small subset of it's features actually works on a Darwin system, probably because it partially relies on procfs. Is there a build or fork of htop that works on OS X since it has the features I want if it worked as it does on Linux?
