Live Exec Commands

Hyperic's Live Exec view allows you to run system commands on a managed platform, or a group of platforms.
Live Exec uses Hyperic's SIGAR — an API for gathering system information in real-time. The table below describes the queries you can run from Live Exec.


Data Returned


All CPUs on a platform.


Usage percentages on each CPU and related data. Equivalent to uptime command.


All filesystems on a platform. This does not list disk-usage percentages.


Network statistics on each of the platform's network interfaces


Active socket connections on the platform


All processes (that the Hyperic Agent can see) running on the platform.

If a process is not listed, it is most likely because the Agent does not have permission to see it.
