Interactive processes viewer

htop is an ncurses-based process viewer similar to top, but it allows one to scroll the list vertically and horizontally to see all processes and their full command lines. Tasks related to processes (killing, renicing) can be done without entering their PIDs.

Once installed, this snap can optionally be connected to some extra plugs:

sudo snap connect htop:mount-observe
sudo snap connect htop:network-control  # DELAYACCT support
