Well, yes it's still the same tool, I always start it with 'system' in
the Krunner (Alt+F2), but it is indeed the same tool under the same
name. Here is the information I have about that package:

Description: System Guard for KDE 4
 KDE System Guard allows you to monitor various statistics about your system.

 In addition to monitoring the local system, it can connect to remote
systems running the KDE System Guard Daemon, which is in the
'ksysguardd' package.

 This package is part of the KDE 4 base workspace module.
