proc

Proc

Expose system state via the /proc file system.

Known limitations

This was written for Voxer to use on Joyent. It has not been tested outside of SmartOS and there really are no expectations that this should run on anything but some flavor of Solaris. I am open to having this module supporting Linux, too and I have talked to multiple people who would be interested in having that exist. I leave it up to you, the contributor, to decide if you'd rather contribute that to this module or run with it in your own module.

usage

Expose /proc/self/usage

Usage usage (Oh, so meta.)

var proc = require('proc');

proc.usage(function (err, usage_obj) {
    console.dir(usage_obj);
});

CLI install

npm install -g proc

CLI usage

proc usage 10008
