       procmeter3-log - A system monitoring / logging program.


       procmeter3-log [-h|--help] [--rc=<filename>] [--...]  [...]


       ProcMeter  Displays one or more pieces of information about the operating system and other
       resources.  Most of the information that is displayed comes  from  the  /proc  filesystem.
       The program is modular and very configurable.


       The command line options are described below.

       -h     Provides  a help message listing the available outputs.  This will be different for
              different computers depending on the Linux kernel version that is  being  used  and
              the hardware/software that is configured.

              Load the specified .procmeterrc file in stead of the searching in the usual places.

       --...  A  list  of  configuration  file  options  that  will  override  the  values in the
              .procmeterrc   file.    The   format   of   these   options   is   (for    example)
              --library.path=/usr/local/procmeter3  which  is  equivalent  to  the  entry  in the
              .procmeterrc file of

               path = /usr/local/procmeter3

              All spaces around the equal sign must be removed and if spaces are required in  the
              value  on  the  right  hand side then quotes must be used around the entire command
              line option.

       ...    A list of names of outputs that are to be displayed.  This can include any  of  the
              outputs  that  are available (see the -h option).  For the CPU usage is in a module
              named Statistics with an output named CPU and there are graph (-g), text  (-t)  and
              bar (-b) options.  Since this version of the program does not display anything, but
              logs the data to a file it does not matter which one is chosen.  To store  the  CPU
              usage data you would use the command line option Statistics.CPU-t


       When  started the program will log all of the requested information on the standard output
       (stdout).  The outputs that are displayed are those from the command line and  those  from
       the .procmeterrc configuration file.


       The   modules   that   are   available   for   procmeter3-log   are   described   in   the
       procmeter3_modules(1) manual page.
