Request for NVTOP task monitor

#1

Nvtop stands for NVidia TOP, a (h)top like task monitor for NVIDIA GPUs. It can handle multiple GPUs and print information about them in a htop familiar way.

It is available on GitHub:

https://github.com/Syllo/nvtop

I followed the guide to install the package(s) on MX 18.2 and all works fine. Would be nice to have this in the MX repo as well.
Distro: MX 18.3 | Kernel: 5.1.2-antix.1-amd64-smp | Desktop: Xfce 4.12.3

The latest version is in Debian testing, which usually makes it pretty easy to rebuilt for MX.

It's a little bitty program--it's just downloading 600 MB of Nvidia development stuff to build each version. Good thing the library has Gigabit internet now. Oh, wait, it's amd64 only, since nvidia-cuda-dev is also only for 64-bit. That will save some time.
