 System monitoring commands
Are there any Linux commands, perl packages, or Java packages for accessing
Linux system information like CPU utilization, memory utilization, and I/O?
So far I've come across "free" to display memory statistics but nothing on
CPU or I/O.

My overall favorite is xosview.

I guess I should be more clear. I'd like to create a program that can
utilize these system commands for gathering system data for benchmarking. I
think xosview is probably a graphical x-windows tool that could not be
utilized from another program.

Perhaps what I need is a C library that enables system calls for information
on memory, CPU, and I/O utilization. I'm not a C expert, so does anyone know
of any libraries / functions I could research and possibly use?

All the information is available from files
in the /proc directory and subdirectories.
I think there is a library named proclib
that can make some things easier.
