GUI administration with KSysguard
This app has absolutely nothing to do with guarding anything. KSysguard lets you manage processes and monitor resources on local or remote systems. According to the documentation, it can be built on Solaris, BSD, and Linux.
KSysguard is actually two applications; a GUI front end, where you can configure sets of worksheets to represent different machines or different monitoring scenarios, and a backend daemon which essentially feeds data to the front end. The back end daemon can be started at boot time or invoked manually from the front end, even if the daemon is on a remote host.
