libstatgrab README http://www.i-scream.org/libstatgrab/ Description ----------- libstatgrab is a library for accessing information from the system for statistical purposes. It could be used for software that monitors the system for alerting or graphing purposes. License ------- The library part of libstatgrab is licensed under the GNU LGPL, but the tools and examples are licensed under the GNU GPL. Building and Installation ------------------------- After downloading and extracting libstatgrab, configure and build as follows; ./configure make Then install as root; make install There are, of course, the usual GNU-style configure options; --prefix=PREFIX For detailed documentation on the generic installation process, please read the INSTALL document. Enhancements of the general configuration process can be seen in the sections "Optional Features" and "Optional Packages" of the output of ./configure --help Library RPATH issues on Linux ----------------------------- You may find on Linux that after installation the utilities don't know where to find the libstatgrab library. This is because RPATH is only set when the installation prefix is not in /etc/ld.so.conf. After installing libstatgrab to a prefix in /etc/ld.so.conf make sure to run ldconfig so that the /etc/ld.so.cache file is updated. This ensures that the runtime linker can find the library. If in doubt, just run ldconfig after installation. Prerequisites ------------- While libstatgrab will run without additional prerequisites, there are several options to improve it. * Having a recent (1.1.0+) version of log4cplus will enable tracing functionalities. log4cplus can be found on its homepage here; http://log4cplus.sourceforge.net/ Note that libstatgrab doesn't enable its logging automatically, the using applications must do it. * Manpages can be built automatically when docbook2x is installed. See http://docbook2x.sourceforge.net/ * On Linux it might be necessary to install the ncurses-dev (or equivalent) package to build saidar. Platform Specific Notes ----------------------- Please see the PLATFORMS file for supported platforms and specific notes on using libstatgrab on those platforms. Notes for packagers - parallel installation ------------------------------------------- If you're packaging libstatgrab for an operating system distribution you may hit the problem that you need both a 0.90+ API version of libstatgrab installed and an older version. Some applications have not yet been updated to use the newer API. We've decided at the moment not to make any changes to libstatgrab to allow parallel installation of multiple versions. You can see our discussion on that at the page below, including how the problem has been worked around on one operating system. https://github.com/i-scream/libstatgrab/issues/25#issuecomment-45358744 We're not sure how big this problem actually is, so please let us know if you're hitting it. This may make us reconsider our position. Problems? --------- If you have any problems or find a bug, please let us know. We have information on how to do that on our website: http://www.i-scream.org/support.xhtml Thank you for using libstatgrab.
