Overview

tmux uses an alternate screen buffer which is the same height and width as the parent terminal.

Create And Attach To Sessions

To attach to an already created session:

$ tmux a -t <session_name>

Detach From A Session

To detach from a tmux session press:

Ctrl-B, D

while in the session. This will leave the session running in the background, so you can re-attach to it later.

Increase Scrollback Buffer Size

Add the following line to your ~/.tmux.conf file. This will allow you to retain more data (history) in the tmux scrollback buffer.

set -g history-limit 50000

Assign Key To Clear History

Add the following line to your ~/.tmux.conf file. This will allow you to press Ctrl-l to clear both the scrollback history and screen data at the same time.

bind -n C-l send-keys C-l \; clear-history

This will emulate similar behaviour to pressing Ctrl-K in bash.
