it depends on what you want to do.
usually, if I want to see what's eating CPU time, i just use top (type
'top' either in a terminal or an ssh session).
I'm sure you could also use 'ps', but I don't know how to show cpu usage
off the top of my head.
I also run gkrellmd on my neo and gkrellm on my host so I can always see
cpu usage etc at a glance. see  for more info
