bb (Big Brother)

bb (Big Brother) — a little Rust command line utility to output real-time list of running processes in the system, and information about them.

Utility bb (Big Brother is for your system) was created as a project “weekend(weekend), for my own pleasure, the author of Persidangan Manos (Manos Pitsidianakis), but system monitor proved to be quite useful and quick, so development continued.

The performance of bb is similar to htop (console monitor), but when displaying a dynamic list of system processes remains visible artifacts when redrawing the screen, particularly when used on weak hardware. The monitor displays the date and time, uptime, CPU usage and memory usage (used/free).

bb displays sortable by several parameters and a dynamically updated list of processes (supported by stop the updates), you can filter and look for processes (by ID, by CPU usage, memory etc), to monitor a particular process and its dependencies, and also to complete the process. The control is via the keyboard, the mouse is partially supported.
