In htop, there appear bars that show CPU, MEMORY and SWAP.

In What exactly do the colors in htop status bars mean? , I saw the meaning of the colors for the CPU bar and the MEMORY bar.

What do the colors mean in the swap bar?

I could find no mention in the htop man.

  • swap bar doesn't have different colors. – Ipor Sircer Nov 8 '16 at 22:21

The Swap Bar has only one colour (red) which simply indicates how much swap memory is being used. You can see this by pressing h (or F1) while running htop.
