    GoAccess for when you need AWstats in a terminal:
    https://goaccess.io/
    A mate at work showed me this and I love it!
    Some other common tools I use are already posted in this thread however :

    ncdu - nice disk Usage
    htop - glorious htop
    nmon - system wide resource monitoring
    iftop - interface monitoring
    nload - network monitoring
    lvetop - for Cloudlinux based servers ( show's users resource usage within LVE limits )
    There's many more, just can't think of them atm.

    Cheers,
    Nuzo

    Yeah, I used to use lsof. ftop is way easier to use, I find. *shrugs*

    Zachary12 on the irc channel just pointed this little gem to me, "up" the Ultimate Plumber, an interactive real-time way to test out complicated chains of pipes... basically a shell that gives you some feedback about what your chain of shell pipes and redirects is actually going to give you, in real time...

    tmux https://github.com/tmux/tmux/wiki
    tmux is a terminal multiplexer. It lets you switch easily between several programs in one terminal, detach them (they keep running in the background) and reattach them to a different terminal.

    EXA https://the.exa.website/
    A modern replacement for ls.

    Notably it's got decent and customisable colourcoding of permissions, shows git statuses of files, vastly better with ACLs, etc, etc. Quite nice. Written in rust

    I happened to discover yesterday that the Find/Replace functionality of VS Code is actually powered by ripgrep, so it turns out I was wrong about that ^
    (but it's great news for me, saves some context switches when I'm already using an editor)

    Cool. Definitely dropping this on the server, and I'll be keeping an eye out for a Windows version for work.

    Also looks like he's developing it pretty fast, which is nice. The github issues tracker looks like it's pretty healthy, so hopefully it'll continue to evolve into a really great heavy-weight replacement for non-small systems over time. You could always try and compile it in WSL now for windows of course, it only needs cmake and libgit2, so not heaps of deps.

    wttr.in would be a lot more useful if it were at all correct....

    Right now it's 39C in Adelaide, yet:

    i've recently made the switch away from screen to tmux. a good choice.
    My favourite feature recently is the ability to send commands to multiple panes at once.
