OSHI is a free JNA-based (native) Operating System and Hardware Information library for Java. It does not require the installation of any additional native libraries and aims to provide a cross-platform implementation to retrieve system information, such as OS version, processes, memory and CPU usage, disks and partitions, devices, sensors, etc.

Supported platforms

Windows • Linux • macOS • Unix (AIX, FreeBSD, OpenBSD, Solaris)

Essentials

Supported features

  • Computer System and firmware, baseboard
  • Operating System and Version/Build
  • Physical (core) and Logical (hyperthreaded) CPUs, processor groups, NUMA nodes
  • System and per-processor load, usage tick counters, interrupts, uptime
  • Process uptime, CPU, memory usage, user/group, command line args, thread details
  • Physical and virtual memory used/available
  • Mounted filesystems (type, usable and total space, options, reads and writes)
  • Disk drives (model, serial, size, reads and writes) and partitions
  • Network interfaces (IPs, bandwidth in/out), network parameters, TCP/UDP statistics
  • Battery state (% capacity, time remaining, power usage stats)
  • USB Devices
  • Connected displays (with EDID info), graphics and audio cards
  • Sensors (temperature, fan speeds, voltage) on some hardware

Usage

  1. Include OSHI and its dependencies on your classpath. We strongly recommend you add OSHI as a dependency to your project dependency manager such as Maven or Gradle. You can find the appropriate syntax to include OSHI here.

  2. Create a new instance of SystemInfo

  3. Use the getters from SystemInfo to access hardware or operating system components, such as:

SystemInfo si = new SystemInfo();
HardwareAbstractionLayer hal = si.getHardware();
CentralProcessor cpu = hal.getProcessor();

See the PERFORMANCE document for general CPU/Memory tradeoffs and specific Windows (WMI) recommendations depending upon your application.

See the FAQ document for common implementation and calculation questions.

Some settings are configurable in the oshi.properties file, which may also be manipulated using the GlobalConfig class. This should be done at startup, as configuration is not thread-safe and OSHI does not guarantee re-reading the configuration during operation.

The oshi-demo artifact includes several proof-of-concept examples of using OSHI to obtain information, including a basic Swing GUI.

Note: OSHI uses the latest version of JNA. If you experience a NoClassDefFoundError or NoSuchMethodError issues with JNA artifacts, you likely have an older version of either jna or jna-platform in your classpath from a transitive dependency on another project. Consider one or more of the following steps to resolve the conflict:

  • Listing OSHI earlier (or first) in your dependency list
  • Specifying the most recent version of JNA (both jna and jna-platform artifacts) in your pom.xml as dependencies.
  • If you are using the Spring Boot Starter Parent version 2.2 and earlier that includes JNA as a dependency:
    • Upgrade to version 2.3 which does not have a JNA dependency (preferred)
    • If you must use version 2.2 or earlier, override the jna.version property to the latest JNA version.

Support

  • For bug reports, feature requests, or general questions about OSHI's longer term plans, please create an issue.
  • For help integrating OSHI into your own project or maintainer code review of your PRs, tag @dbwiddis in issues or pull requests on your project site.
  • For "how to" questions regarding use of the API, consult examples in the oshi-demo project, create an issue, or search on Stack Overflow using the oshi tag, asking a new question if it hasn't been answered before.
  • To say thanks to OSHI's primary maintainer, you can sponsor him or buy him a coffee.

To report a security vulnerability, please use the Tidelift security contact. Tidelift will coordinate the fix and disclosure.

Output

OSHI provides output directly via Java methods for each of its interfaces.
By periodically polling dynamic information (e.g., every second), users can calculate and track changes.

You can see more examples and run the SystemInfoTest and see the full output for your system by cloning the project and building it with Maven:

git clone https://github.com/oshi/oshi.git && cd oshi

./mvnw test-compile -pl oshi-core exec:java \
  -Dexec.mainClass="oshi.SystemInfoTest" \
  -Dexec.classpathScope="test"

In addition, the oshi-demo project includes an OshiGui class implementing a basic Swing GUI offering suggestions for potential visualizations using OSHI in a UI, monitoring, or alerting application, as shown below:

Where are we? How can I help?

OSHI originated as a platform-independent library that did not require additional software and had a license compatible with both open source and commercial products. We have developed a strong core of features on major Operating Systems, but we would love for you to help by:

  • Testing! Our CI testing is limited to a few platforms. Download and test the program on various operating systems/versions and hardware and help identify gaps that our limited development and testing may have missed. Particular testing needs include:
    • Windows systems with over 64 processors
    • Raspberry Pi
    • Less common Linux distributions
  • Contributing code. See something that's not working right or could work better? Help us fix it! New contributors are welcome.
  • Documenting implementation. Our Wiki is sparse and the oshi-demo artifact is a place to host proof-of-concept ideas. Want to help new users follow in your footsteps?
  • Suggesting new features. Do you need OSHI to do something it doesn't currently do? Let us know.
