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 and monitor the results immediately.
It is important to understand that when multiple haproxy processes are started on the same socket, any process may pick up the request and thus hatop will output stats owned solely by that process. The current haproxy-internal process id is displayed top right.
Invoking hatop without options or with -h / --help results in:
$ hatop --help Usage: hatop -s SOCKET [OPTIONS]... Options: --version show program's version number and exit -h, --help show this help message and exit Mandatory: -s SOCKET, --unix-socket=SOCKET path to the haproxy unix socket Optional: -i INTERVAL, --update-interval=INTERVAL update interval in seconds (1-30, default: 3) -m MODE, --mode=MODE start in specific mode (1-5, default: 1) -n, --read-only disable the cli and query for stats only Filters: Note: All filter options may be given multiple times. -f FILTER, --filter=FILTER stat filter in format "<iid> <type> <sid>" -p PROXY, --proxy=PROXY proxy filter in format "<pxname>"

Key Action Hh? Display this help screen CTRL-C / Qq Quit TAB Cycle mode forwards SHIFT-TAB Cycle mode backwards ALT-n / ESC-n Switch to mode n, where n is the numeric mode id ESC-ESC Jump to previous mode ENTER Display hotkey menu for selected service SPACE Copy and paste selected service identifier to the CLI
You can scroll the stat views using UP / DOWN / PGUP / PGDOWN / HOME / END.
The reverse colored cursor line is used to select a given service instance.
An unique identifier [#<iid>/<#sid>] of the selected service is displayed bottom right.
You can hit SPACE to copy and paste the identifier in string format pxname/svname to the CLI for easy re-use with some commands.
The result is this command line:
> disable server <pxname>/<svname>
Hotkey Action F4 Restore initial server weight F5 Decrease server weight: - 10 F6 Decrease server weight: - 1 F7 Increase server weight: + 1 F8 Increase server weight: + 10 F9 Enable server (return from maintenance mode) F10 Disable server (put into maintenance mode)
Hotkey actions and server responses are logged on the CLI viewport.
You can scroll the output on the CLI view using PGUP / PGDOWN.
A brief keybind reference is logged there directly after startup...
