statgrab: sysctl-style interface to system statistics


statgrab - sysctl-style interface to system statistics


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


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.


The following options are supported.
Linux sysctl-style output (default)
BSD sysctl-style output
MRTG-compatible output
Plain output (only show values)
Display cumulative stats once (default)
Display stat differences repeatedly
Display stat differences once
When repeating, wait DELAY seconds between updates (default 1)
Display CPU usage differences as percentages rather than absolute values
Display floating-point values as integers scaled by FACTOR
Display byte counts in kibibytes
Display byte counts in mebibytes
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.
