[CentOS-devel] Collecting data

 I think Hugo's point is that there are much easier ways to extract the 
information you require without bloating the your kernel. It sounds like a shell 
script either in Bash or Perl calling the userland functions is the best way to 
go. "vmstat", "uptime", "top" and "who" could be invoked and then parsed to 
provide an easy way to return much of the information you indicate is required. 
I have to echo the thoughts of Alan that posting to General is a better forum 
for these sorts of questions.

I know that there are many tools. This C program is developed with special task. 
Can you help me?
