System info like you get from Window's Task Manager


Hi guys. Is there a way to get system utilization info from a RHEL server? In interested in seeing the same info I would through Task Manager on a Windows machine, but through the CLI.

Comparing a GUI Program (Win Task Manager) with a CLI tool is already tricky in itself! A GUI equivalent under Gnome would be "System Monitor", which is quite similar to the Task Manager. But on the CLI you have to gather all info's by yourself or by using a script, calling system tools like ps, uname, netstat and others, or reading the "files" from the /proc directory.

I'm not so concerned about it being in a GUI, just if there was a single command that would show me all that same type of info.
