You can do the a similar thing with ksysguard.

I have debian running on my freerunner, so it was simple to install it, and 
monitor my freerunner's process table, cpu and memory consumption remotely

You need to install ksysguardd which is the demon that ksysguard connects to.

I also found that I could not directly connect to the demon, instead I needed 
to use an SSH tunnel. To do that, I added my ssh key as authorised 
in /root/.ssh, and started an ssh agent on my desktop PC, with my key loaded.
