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.

Command

Data Returned

cpuinfo

All CPUs on a platform.

cpuperc

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

df

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

ifconfig

Network statistics on each of the platform's network interfaces

netstat

Active socket connections on the platform

top

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.
