Htop installation

Htop is an interactive and real time process monitoring application for Linux. It shows complete list of processes running and easy to use for normal tasks. We can interact with mouse those who love to play with mouse. You can scroll vertically to view the full process list, and scroll horizontally to view the full command line of the process.
