How to Find Cpu Utilization in Linux With Stress Terminal UI

Monitoring CPU utilization in Linux became a little better with the stress of the Terminal UI.

For us lovers of the terminal, the terminal more a better tool. I have discussed a number of terminal tool before, including a music player, a file browser etc. And today, I'm here with the monitoring tools that can visualize various parameters of your CPU in your terminal.

I know that we have been discussing the tools CoreFreq CPU utilization in the past but that this tool is intended for advanced users. Stress Terminal UI is relatively easier to use and understand.
Stress Terminal UI for CPU monitoring on Linux.

Stress Terminal UI (or in short, the s-tui) is the CPU monitoring tool that runs entirely in your terminal. Written in Python and developed by Alex Manuskin. Let us look first:

Have a visually pleasing interface and clean. If you want to plan a smooth graph, you can check the relevant option

Stress Terminal UI offering the following features:
  • Visualize the frequency of the CPU, Utilization, temperature & power usage
  • Display performance dips are caused by thermal throttling
  • Lightly using minimal resources &
  • There is a display server (requires IE. X-server for most Linux distros)
  • The operating mode of stress testing stress CPU
You can hide specific parts if you don't need it. Here's how it looks with smooth graph plan and just use of Power frequency & part is enabled.

"s-tui" also support stress testing of your CPU. Use the "stress" of the command line tools in the background to emphasize the CPU. If you select the operation mode of stress, you'll notice that all the graphics will be hitting the max value.

You can also tweak the parameters of stress testing stress options.

"s-tui" also displays the CPU information of text below.

If you want to observe the various parameters of your computer CPU stress Terminal UI is a tool that is really good. Specifically this will be very helpful if you want to monitor a remote system or VPS.

However, s-tui does not indicate specific information about processes that are running on the system, it just visualizes the overall situation. So, if you want a tool that reports information about an individual process or want to manage those processes, s-tui really can't help you with that.
Installation in Ubuntu and other Linux distributions.

To install s-tui, you will need the Python Environment that is set up on your system and "pip" command must be available.

Now, run the following command to install it:
pip install s-tui --user

If you want to install the system-wide, you must run the "pip" with sudo:
sudo pip install s-tui

It was enough to install the s-tui.

But if you want to use Stress mode operation, you should also install the "stress" on your system. This is just a simple apt command from:
sudo apt install stress

Now, you go up and ready to use s-tui on your system.
