+Glances is a free (LGPL) cross-platform curses-based monitoring tool
+which aims to present a maximum of information in a minimum of space,
+ideally to fit in a classical 80x24 terminal or higher to have addi-
+tionnal information.
+Glances can adapt dynamically the displayed information depending on
+the terminal size. It can also work in a client/server mode for remote
+This tool is written in Python and uses the psutil library to fetch the
+statistical values from key elements, like CPU, load average, memory,
+network, disks, file systems, processes, etc.
+Optional dependencies are Jinja2 (for HTML output), hddtemp (for HHD
+temperature monitoring support) and python3.
+Others not available on SBo are pysensors (for HW monitoring support)
+and batinfo (for battery monitoring support).
