Below are a bunch of easy one-liner commands that gives information about various aspects of your Linux machine.

free -h | awk '/^Mem:/ {print $3 "/" $2}'

Show CPU temperature

sensors | awk '/^Core*/ {print $1$2, $3}'

Most Memory Intensive processes

ps axch -o cmd:15,%mem --sort=-%mem | head

Most CPU Intensive processes

ps axch -o cmd:15,%cpu --sort=-%cpu | head

I wrote a small shell script to get (almost) realtime update of your system.
