Install htop with Yum

The yum package manager does not contain htop by default. This is okay; we just need to add an EPEL repository so yum can find it. Here’s the commands to add that repository:


yum -y install epel-release

yum -y update


Now with the repository properly added, you can tell yum to install the htop process monitoring tool:


yum -y install htop

If the installation completes successfully, you should be able to type htop at the command line and see the status of your system.
