System Administration

Essential System Utilities: System Monitoring Center


No system monitor would be complete without a list of the running processes.

SMC - process list

Right click on a process and we can pause the process, continue the process, end the process, and end the process immediately. There’s also the option to change the priority of a process; choose from very high, high, normal, low, very low, or a custom value.

There’s the option to search for processes, as well as the ability to order processes by clicking on the column headings which worked fine with the GTK4 version built from the AUR under Manjaro. However, sorting had an issue with the Flatpak version.

We can view the processes as a tree (from the customization cog) and show tree lines.
