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