Sneak peek of top graphs

Jim has been busy as part of the procps-ng team that looks after top. Basically all the changes you find in top from around 2.7 or so are by him. Not satisfied enough with fixing top, making it faster and showing more fields, he has given us CPU and memory graphs.

He also thinks I don’t have enough colours (or as he would put it colors) on my top output so I’ve posted what the new top looks like for me so you can see the graphs and he can see my colours.

I think it is both colourful and useful addition. The colours have been available for a while now and the graphs will appear in the next upstream release of procps-ng.
