tload: A hidden gadget

Since I mentioned nload, I feel obligated to show tload as well now.

Probably tload is on your system and you don’t even know it. In both Arch and Debian, tload is part of the procps package, and I’d bet it’s in your system too.

tload is probably as simple an application as you can get (short of Hello World, of course), with only one or two options and a one-track output.

But, like nload, it gives you what you need with a minimum of resources, doesn’t make unruly demands of your terminal, and hey: It’s probably installed already.
