Hi All,

I want to write a code to get CPU Statistics.
My goal is write a code that collect some system statistics and with it I can do some predictions.

How is the better way? A friend told me to use the information in /proc...

See you,

I work making capacity planning and performance analysis, so for all capacity planning or performance analysis I need to get a lot of information about the load of the system, then I need to cross information about the operating system with information about Oracle(among of sessions, how much CPU time the session consume), for example.

I'm tired to do this manually, so I decided to write a system to do it for me.

My idea is:

- Write a agent to collect all information that I need;
- Write a server to receive all information collected by agent;
- The server will do the analysis based on information collected;
- And at the end, the server will generate a report;

I'm a Science of Computer stundant, so, at the end of my course, I want to show this software to get my graduation. :)

Do you know about /proc/cpuinfo and the other /proc entries? I'm not sure what you want, but it is a start.
