beostat -- Display raw data from the Beostat system.


beostat [-h, --help ] [ --version ] [-v, --verbose ] [-N NUM, --node=NUM ] [-c, --cpuinfo ] [-m, --meminfo ] [-l, --loadavg ]
[-n, --net ] [-s, --stat ] [-f, --file ] [-C, --cpupercent ] [-D, --diskusage ] [-R, --netrate ] [-I, --idle=thres ] [-b, --brief ]


The Beostat daemon is part of the libbeostat package. It can be used as a low-level utility to check on data being passed by the Beostat system. Other programs, such as BeoStatus, are probably better for day-to-day use.

The beostat command normally shows all available information on all communicating nodes. Giving various options, with the exception of --verbose, will show less information. You may give more than one type of data flag.


The following options are available to the beostat command.

-v, --verbose

Verbose, display information on all nodes, even if those nodes are down. Normally, Beostat displays only "up" nodes.

-N NUM, --node=NUM

Show only the data for node NUM rather than for all the nodes.

-c, --cpuinfo

Display the CPU model information

-m --meminfo

Display memory statistics

-l, --loadavg

Display load average information

-n, --net

Display network interface information.

-s, --stat

Display CPU statistics information.

-f, --file

Display root filesystem information.

-h, --help

Display brief help and exit.


Display program version information and exit.

-C, --cpupercent

Convenience option to display CPU info.

-D, --diskusage

Convenience option to display disk usage of root filesystem

-R, --netrate

Convenience option to display network rate of all interfaces

-I, --idle=THRES

Convenience option to display number of CPUs more idle than THRES

-b, --brief

Display convenience values (cpupercent, diskusage, netrate, or idle), with no extra text. This eliminates the need to parse the output to obtain the specific values. Only valid when used with one of the convenience options (-C, -D, -R, or -I).
