The repatriation of Iranians killed in the Haj stampede in Saudi Arabia has been delayed until at least on Wednesday, officials said, citing administrative problems and difficulties in identifying victims.With the uproar over the tragedy showing no sign of easing, President Hassan Rouhani arrived back in Tehran on Tuesday having left the UN General Assembly early, after citing Saudi “incompetence” at the Haj. However the families of those who died in the crush — 228 Iranian fatalities have been confirmed — are still waiting for the ceremonial return of their loved ones.

People started using htop when the top just didn’t provide enough information. Now there is NVTOP, a tool that looks similar to htop but displays the process information loaded on your NVIDIA GPU. It works on Linux systems and displays detailed information about processes, memory used, which GPU and also displays the total GPU and memory usage. The first version of this tool was released in July last year. The latest change made the process list and command options scrollable. Some of the features of NVTOP are: Sorting by column To Select / Ignore a specific GPU by ID To kill selected process Monochrome option Yes, it has multi GPU support and can display the running processes from all of your GPUs. The information printed out looks like the following, and is similar to something htop would display. Source: GitHub There is also a manual page to give some guidance in using NVTOP. It can be accessed with this command: man nvtop There are OS specific installation steps on GitHub for Ubuntu/Debian, Fedora/RedHat/CentOS, OpenSUSE, and Arch Linux. Requirements There are two libraries needed to build and run NVTOP: The NVIDIA Management Library (NVML) for querying GPU information. The ncurses library for the user interface and make it colorful. Supported GPUs The NVTOP tool works only for NVIDIA GPUs and runs on Linux systems. One of the dependencies is the NVML library which does not support some queries from GPUs before the Kepler microarchitecture. That is anything before GeForce 600 series, GeForce 700 series, or GeForce 800M wouldn’t likely work. For AMD users, there is a tool called radeontop. The tool is provided under the GPLV3 license.
