Is there any form of task manager or device monitor?

Is there some way i can examine the resources that the computer is using (e.g. ram/cpu/disk usage) in one place with a gui?

Please have a look here:
Hopefully you’ll find something to your liking.

several. If you use KDE, there is plasma-systemmonitor and ksysguard


You are in luck because there are probably literally a thousand options to choose from. The list from @pebcak’s post was great, and a great place to start, but is also a drop in the bucket.


What DE did you pick? It probably already comes with one.
