Description

The statgrab library provides a cross-platform interface to get several system statistics. System statistics aren't standardised, so the statgrab library tries to choose the most important values over all supported operating systems. This implies that some values might not be available on every OS while some specific values are missing when there are no counterparts on any other OS.

The libstatgrab is organised in components, each for interrelated statistics.

component statistics
cpu sg_cpu_stats, sg_cpu_percents
disk sg_disk_io_stats, sg_fs_stats
load sg_load_stats
mem sg_mem_stats
network sg_network_io_stats, sg_network_iface_stats
os sg_host_info
page sg_page_stats
process sg_process_stats, sg_process_count
swap sg_swap_stats
user sg_user_stats

The library was originally written to support the i-scream central monitoring system, but has since become a standalone package. It has been ported to work on Linux, NetBSD, FreeBSD, OpenBSD, DragonFly BSD, Solaris, HP-UX, AIX and Cygwin.
