I'm trying to find a way to make some kind of monitor in C.
I found this but i get :
error: config.h: No such file or directory
error: glibtop.h: No such file or directory
error: glibtop/error.h: No such file or directory
error: glibtop/cpu.h: No such file or directory
error: glibtop_suid.h: No such file or directory

Can anyone help me with this?
Or to give me another idea like how to get info from /proc/cpuinfo with C ?
I'm using ubuntu 7.4

#include <stdio.h>
#include <glibtop.h>
#include <glibtop/cpu.h>
#include <glibtop/mem.h>
#include <glibtop/proclist.h>

int main(){


glibtop_cpu cpu;
glibtop_mem memory;
glibtop_proclist proclist;

glibtop_get_cpu (&cpu);

"Cpu Total : %ld \n"
"Cpu User : %ld \n"
"Cpu Nice : %ld \n"
"Cpu Sys : %ld \n"
"Cpu Idle : %ld \n"
"Cpu Frequences : %ld \n",
(unsigned long)cpu.total,
(unsigned long)cpu.user,
(unsigned long)cpu.nice,
(unsigned long)cpu.sys,
(unsigned long)cpu.idle,
(unsigned long)cpu.frequency);

printf("\nMEMORY USING\n\n"
"Memory Total : %ld MB\n"
"Memory Used : %ld MB\n"
"Memory Free : %ld MB\n"
"Memory Buffered : %ld MB\n"
"Memory Cached : %ld MB\n"
"Memory user : %ld MB\n"
"Memory Locked : %ld MB\n",
(unsigned long)memory.total/(1024*1024),
(unsigned long)memory.used/(1024*1024),
(unsigned long)memory.free/(1024*1024),
(unsigned long)memory.shared/(1024*1024),
(unsigned long)memory.buffer/(1024*1024),
(unsigned long)memory.cached/(1024*1024),
(unsigned long)memory.user/(1024*1024),
(unsigned long)memory.locked/(1024*1024));

int which,arg;
(unsigned long)proclist.number,
(unsigned long)proclist.total,
(unsigned long)proclist.size);
return 0;

Either you don't have glib installed on your computer or you need to tell your compiler where to find it.

Don't know, but someone else probably does.

Or to give me another idea like how to get info from /proc/cpuinfo

Sure: system("more /proc/cpuinfo > /tmp/file"); Now just open the file /tmp/file and read the data that you want.
Or you could use a named pipe with one end in your C-program and "more /proc/cpuinfo" in the other.
Or you could use if a filestream (C++) or..

glibtop.h is not part of glib - but a separate library called glibtop.

You need to install the glibtop library itself, and its header files.

On ubuntu/debian these correspond to the packages libgtop2 and libgtop2-dev so run:

apt-get install libgtop2 libgtop2-dev
as root.

I hope this helps.


gcc systeminfo.c -o systeminfo -I/usr/include/glib-2.0 -I/usr/lib/glib-2.0/include -I/usr/include/libgtop-2.0 -lgtop-2.0 -lglib-2.0

compile the above code with this. for fedora red hat users..if libgtop not installed try su -c 'yum install libgtop2'

pls tell us hw to run it in Windows XP
