Iceberg was decommissioned on 30th November 2020. Users of Iceberg need to switch to using ShARC and/or Bessemer instead.


This is htop, an interactive process viewer for Unix systems.

Interactive Usage

After connecting to Iceberg (see Establishing a SSH connection), start an interactive session with the qrsh or qsh command.

The latest version of htop (currently 2.0) is made available with the command

module load apps/gcc/4.4.7/htop

Alternatively, you can load a specific version with

module load apps/gcc/4.4.7/htop/2.0

This command makes the htop binary available to your session.

Installation notes

htop was installed using gcc 4.4.7

tar -xvzf ./htop-2.0.0.tar.gz

mkdir -p /usr/local/packages6/apps/gcc/4.4.7/htop/2.0
