gnome-system-monitor [gnome-std-options] DESCRIPTION
The System Monitor application displays a list of system processes, and monitors system usage. System Monitor shows which processes are running and how the processes are related. System Monitor also provides detailed information about individual processes, and enables the user to control which processes are running. System Monitor displays how much processor (CPU) capacity the system is using, and how much disk space the system is using on each device. System Monitor displays this information in a graphical interface so that users can see what the system is doing. Users can then use the same graphical interface to modify the behavior of the system.
