esxtop and OSX’s Terminal Application

Being a Mac user I’m always using OSX’s Terminal application.  It works well and I haven’t found a need for a 3rd party Terminal app, except maybe when working with a USB to Serial device for device configs.  One problem I’ve seen people complain about is using esxtop in Terminal.  Instead of what you should see you get this:

It’s easy to fix this.  You just need to go in to the Preferences for Terminal and change the terminal type that it “declares”.  This is in Preferences, Settings, Advanced.  Change “Declare terminal as:” from xterm-256color to just xterm:

Close the Preferences window, close Terminal, restart it and you should now get this:

  1. Thanks Jason, useful post. With the Mac support for the web client coming I’m looking to move away from View desktops at home but “TERM=xterm esxtop” seemed a bit boring!

  2. Since we first got a glimpse of these 11 Lows back in 2013 when MJ had them on at his summer basketball camp, weve been praying for a release. What we thought was another exclusive retro that would only be found in Jordans closet is now set to hit retailers. Mike seems to love breaking out exclusive kicks during his summer camp. As if these kids getting to see him in person wasnt enough, Mike must love da kids.This release marks the first time the Air Jordan 11, high or low, has ever featured a gum rubber outsole, and this clean look is perfect for any occasion. This low-top Air Jordan 11 comes dressed in a midnight navy, white and gum brown color scheme. The shoe features a full navy upper with midnight navy patent leather overlays, matching laces that rests on a white midsole and gum brown rubber outsole. Summer time fine is the best way to describe these kicks. Make sure you cop yours!From to:
