statgrab — sysctl-style interface to system statistics

Synopsis

statgrab [OPTION]... [STAT]...

Description

statgrab provides a sysctl-style interface to all the system statistics available through libstatgrab. This is useful for applications that don't want to make library calls, but still want to access the statistics.

An example of such an application is mrtg, for which scripts are provided to generate configuration files.

Options

The following options are supported.

-l
Linux sysctl-style output (default)
-b
BSD sysctl-style output
-m
MRTG-compatible output
-u
Plain output (only show values)
-n
Display cumulative stats once (default)
-s
Display stat differences repeatedly
-o
Display stat differences once
-t DELAY
When repeating, wait DELAY seconds between updates (default 1)
-p
Display CPU usage differences as percentages rather than absolute values
-f FACTOR
Display floating-point values as integers scaled by FACTOR
-K
Display byte counts in kibibytes
-M
Display byte counts in mebibytes
-G
Display byte counts in gibibytes

If no STAT options are given, all will be displayed. Specify 'STAT.' to display all statistics starting with that prefix.
