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.
