       HATop - interactive ncurses client for haproxy


       hatop -s SOCKET [OPTIONS]


       HATop  is  an  interactive  ncurses client and real-time monitoring, statistics displaying
       tool for the HAProxy TCP/HTTP load balancer.

       HATop's appearance is similar to top(1). It supports various modes for detailed statistics
       of  all  configured  proxies  and  services in near realtime.  In addition, it features an
       interactive CLI for the haproxy unix socket.  This allows administrators  to  control  the
       given  haproxy  instance  (change  server  weight, put servers into maintenance mode, ...)
       directly out of hatop (using keybinds or the CLI) and monitor the results immediately.

       HATop uses a unix domain socket to communicate with HAProxy.  This can  be  configured  in
       the  HAProxy  configuration  using  the  "stats  socket" option.  To enable all of HATop's
       features the "level" parameter of this option should be set to "admin".
