Vmstat Build Status Code Climate

This is a focused and fast library to get system information like:

  • Memory (free, active, ...)
  • Network Interfaces (name, in bytes, out bytes, ...)
  • CPU (user, system, nice, idle)
  • Load Average
  • Disk (type, disk path, free bytes, total bytes, ...)
  • Boot Time
  • Current Task (used bytes and usage time MAC OS X / Linux ONLY)

It currently supports:

  • FreeBSD
  • MacOS X
  • Linux (>= 2.6)
  • OpenBSD
  • NetBSD
  • Solaris/SmartOS

It might support (but not tested):

  • Older versions of linux

Installation

Add this line to your application's Gemfile:

gem 'vmstat'

And then execute:

$ bundle

Or install it yourself as:

$ gem install vmstat

Usage

Just require the library and make a snapshot or use the distinct methods to just capture parts of the statistics. For further information have a look at the rdoc.

require "vmstat"

Todo

  • Swap information
  • Support more platforms (hp ux, aix, ...)
  • Optimize performance for OpenBSD, NetBSD using uvmexp etc. directly
  • Optimize performance for solaris, smartos using kstat etc. directly
  • Server performance/system information (open file handles, cache sizes, number of inodes ...)
