Q: Sysinfo for Linux

  Is there something like sysinfo for Linux. I know I can get every info
about the system without it but it would be nice to have it all in one place.

If you have the proc virtual file system enabled then some simple
shell scripts should do the job.

e.g cat /proc/cpuinfo will give you info about cpu as Linux knows it.



1. sysinfo question: what is the sysinfo.loads[0] mean ?

heh... just spent a few days myself on this problem.  the kernel can't use
any any floating point math, but the load average is not an integer, so
they use fixed point math on an unsigned long.  took a bit of digging
through kernel source to figure out how to extract the number.. here's a
code snippet.

        int whole, fract, tmp, i;
        float loads[3];

        for(i = 0 ; i >= 2 ; i++ ){
                tmp = ((info->loads[i]>>5) + 10);

                whole = tmp >> 11;
                fract = (((tmp & 0x7FF) * 100) >> 11);

                loads[i] = whole;
                loads[i] += ((float)fract / 100);
