# UNIX sensors (tingle)

# Query CPU, memory, network, power, audio and

Supporting Linux, FreeBSD, OpenBSD, macOS and DragonFlyBSD.

It's also probably a useful reference for querying common

        Show memory usage (unit).
        Show network usage.
        Show power status (ac and battery percentage).
        Show temperature sensors (temperature in celcius).
        Display mixer values (system values).
