OS system statistics library for Go

This is a library to get system metrics like cpu load and memory usage. The library is created for mackerel-agent.

Example

package main

import (
	"fmt"
	"os"

	"github.com/mackerelio/go-osstat/memory"
)

func main() {
	memory, err := memory.Get()
	if err != nil {
		fmt.Fprintf(os.Stderr, "%s\n", err)
		return
	}
	fmt.Printf("memory total: %d bytes\n", memory.Total)
	fmt.Printf("memory used: %d bytes\n", memory.Used)
	fmt.Printf("memory cached: %d bytes\n", memory.Cached)
	fmt.Printf("memory free: %d bytes\n", memory.Free)
}

Supported OS

loadavg uptime cpu memory network disk i/o
Linux o o o o o o
Darwin o o *1 o o x
FreeBSD o o x o o x
NetBSD o o x x o x
Windows x o x o x x

*1: unavailable without cgo

Note for counter values

This library returns the counter value for cpu, network and disk I/O statistics by design. To get the cpu usage in percent, network traffic in kB/s or disk IOPS, sleep for a while and calculate the difference.

package main

import (
	"fmt"
	"os"
	"time"

	"github.com/mackerelio/go-osstat/cpu"
)

func main() {
	before, err := cpu.Get()
	if err != nil {
		fmt.Fprintf(os.Stderr, "%s\n", err)
		return
	}
	time.Sleep(time.Duration(1) * time.Second)
	after, err := cpu.Get()
	if err != nil {
		fmt.Fprintf(os.Stderr, "%s\n", err)
		return
	}
	total := float64(after.Total - before.Total)
	fmt.Printf("cpu user: %f %%\n", float64(after.User-before.User)/total*100)
	fmt.Printf("cpu system: %f %%\n", float64(after.System-before.System)/total*100)
	fmt.Printf("cpu idle: %f %%\n", float64(after.Idle-before.Idle)/total*100)
}
