GNOME System Monitor is mainly used to monitor system resources. It’s a GUI-based application, through which we can manage running processes as well. At times, some process would consume resources more than what a machine can handle. If that happens then, we can launch GNOME System Monitor and check for processes which could be troubling us at that point in time. From there itself, we can limit the resources a process could consume. Or, we can also completely stop it as well. In this article, we cover how to install GNOME System Monitor in AlmaLinux 9.
