NAME

       procmeter3-log - A system monitoring / logging program.

SYNOPSIS

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

DESCRIPTION

       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.

OPTIONS

       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.

       --rc=<filename>
              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

               [library]
               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

USAGE

       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.

MODULES

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