Trying poking around in the /proc filesystem.  You'll see files like 
'interrupts', 'meminfo', 'ioports', etc.  Just use 'cat' to look at these
files, e.g., 'cat /proc/interrupts'

There are also a few other commands that can tell you what's happening
with current memory, 'vmstat', 'free', 'ps', 'top'.
