Question

Is there any option to check CPU usage dynamically?

I’ve been trying to track the CPU usage in droplets,however I can only find time-defined options. Is there any way available to track the CPU usage dynamically?

Thanks in advance.

Hello,

What I would personally do is to use a command like top or htop. Both commands will show you your current CPU usage in real time.

You can follow the steps here on how to use the commands:

This answer also includes an example of how to use the sar command too.

Hope that this helps!
