System Activity


System Activity is akin to the Microsoft Window's Task Manager, Apple's Mac OS X's Activity Monitor and Gnome's System Monitor.

It shows a list of currently running processes, along with their CPU usage, Memory usage, and various other pieces of information.

The kernel, and other tools, can provide a lot of information about a process, such as the libraries that it pulls in, how the memory is laid out, and so on. Using scripting, we can present this information in an easy to read format.
