We run a couple of automated
scans to help you access a
module's quality. Each module is
given a score based on how well
the author has formatted their
code and documentation and
modules are also checked for
malware using VirusTotal.

deric/htop — version 1.0.2 Jan 15th 2024

puppet-htop

Puppet
Forge Tests Puppet Forge
Downloads

Manages htop package and its configuration with Hiera support (optional).

Usage

Basic definition will install htop package and create /root/.config/htop/htoprc file:

include htop

Since htop 3, you can configure screens:

htop::users:
  john:
    options:
      config_reader_min_version: 3
    screens:
      - name: 'Main'
        header: 'PID USER PRIORITY NICE M_VIRT M_RESIDENT M_SHARE STATE PERCENT_CPU PERCENT_MEM TIME Command'
        config:
          sort_key: PERCENT_MEM

note, the config should include config_reader_min_version=3.

In most cases you probably want to override just some configuration

htop::users:
  root:
    options:
      sort_key: 47 # memory
      highlight_base_name: 1

But you can also change global settings (applies to multiple accounts) e.g. via Hiera:

htop::defaults:
  sort_key: 47 # sort by memory
  highlight_base_name: 1

you can configure different options for each account:

htop::users:
  foo:
    options:
      hide_kernel_threads: 0
  bar:
    options:
      tree_view: 1

user options will be merged into global defauls (defined in htop::config::defaults).

or directly via puppet code:

class{'htop':
  defaults => {
    sort_key => 46,
  }
}

All Puppet variables are documented in REFERENCE.md.

Preferably using libarian or r10k:

mod 'deric-htop'
