Description Trond.Endrestol 2014-11-01 11:44:01 UTC
sysutils/htop doesn't show kernel threads any more after upgrading to 1.0.3. This happens all across the board, be it base/head, base/stable/10, base/stable/9, etc.

No, I haven't disabled the htop display option "Hide kernel threads", nor the htop display option "Hide userland threads", for that matter. It doesn't matter if I enable "Tree view" or not.

Kernel threads are simply no longer being displayed.

I'm moving this PR out of triage.  It timed out but there are no patches provided to promote.
Comment 3 Hung-Yi Chen 2015-02-06 18:49:44 UTC
I think it's a bug of htop 1.0.3.

I'm waiting for upstream patch.
Comment 4 Hung-Yi Chen 2015-07-16 19:21:33 UTC
It seems upstream fixed this issue.

I'll send a new patch for it.

Changed distfile to fetch latest commit from github.

Builds, and kernel thread numbers are displayed if "K" is typed, but I'm unsure
it does what submitter asked for. Can someone please test ?

(In reply to Kurt Jaeger from comment #5)

Confirmed to "work" on FreeBSD/amd64 stable/10 r290090, i.e. the kernel processes are shown again. But, CPU and memory utilization are no longer shown. Back to the drawing board.

I'm not sure if the kernel process (PID 0) needs to be displayed. Previously, the kernel threads were shown at the bottom when the processes were displayed as a process tree.

Have you tried to report this problem upstream ?

updated to most recent commit at github, see


builds fine on 11, it looks like per-cpu load is displayed again.

Please check and confirm.
Comment 9 Kurt Jaeger freebsd_committer 2016-02-05 22:12:32 UTC
Run-tested on 11a, 10.2a for kernel-threads, per-cpu load. Seems fine.
Comment 10 Kurt Jaeger freebsd_committer 2016-02-05 22:18:35 UTC
Run-tested on 10.2i for kernel-threads, per-cpu load. Seems fine.
