Take a  look at the "monitor" command.    It's pretty limited, but might be helpful/useful.
Another approach is to enable the "support" account (via the "set-support" command).
This will give you access to the tools you are probably used to for this kind of thing (top, ps, lsof, lsmem, etc.)
Just be careful to disable ("set-support -d") the support account when you are done.
It will disable itself over time, but its better/safer to do it yourself immediately after you are done).

Following up on what Tom said, viewing memory usage, especially through Hosts, is not straightforward. Please see the following link for more helpful information on memory:
