Linux Task Manager With Options

A task manager is a tool that allows you to monitor and manage system processes and resources. It provides you real-time information about the CPU, memory, and disk usage of each process running, as well as the overall system resource usage. This information can be helpful in identifying resource-intensive processes and troubleshooting performance issues.

There are several task manager options available in Linux, including command-line utilities like top and ps, as well as graphical task managers like gnome-system-monitor and KDE System Monitor. Here are some of the most commonly used task manager options:
