Glances is a cross-platform monitoring tool that aims to present maximum information in minimal space through either a curses-based or Web-based interface. It can dynamically adapt the displayed information depending on the terminal size.

It can also work in client/server mode. Remote monitoring can be done via terminal, Web interface, or API (XMLRPC and RESTful).

Glances is written in Python and uses the psutil library to get information from your system.

Stats can also be exported to external time/value databases.
