RestfulΒΆ

You can export statistics to a Restful JSON server. All the available stats will be exported in one big (~15 KB) POST request to the Restful endpoint.

The Restful endpoint should be defined in the Glances configuration file as following:

[restful]
# Configuration for the --export-restful option
# Example, export to http://localhost:6789/
host=localhost
port=6789
protocol=http
path=/

URL Syntax:

http://localhost:6789/
|      |         |   |
|      |         |   path
|      |         port
|      host
protocol

and run Glances with:

$ glances --export-restful

Glances will generate stats as a big JSON dictionary (see example here).
