Are there any Event Viewer and Device Manager equivalent applications for Ubuntu (like Windows) so that I can track every task occurring in it?


If you aren't looking for a GUI, the equivalent of Device Manager would be the three ls commands:


Note that lshw is a superset of lspci and lsusb, so you can use the Hardware Lister (lshw-gtk) GUI.

To view the logs, there is a GUI application called System Log usually installed in Ubuntu by default.


If you want a GUI, system monitor is your friend.

Search for it in the dash. It has all the processes, CPU, Memory and Network usage, and Disk space.
