It’s possible to export stats to a CSV file.

$ glances --export csv --export-csv-file /tmp/glances.csv --quiet

CSV file description:

  • first line: Stats description (header)
  • others lines: Stats (data)

By default, data will be append any existing CSV file (if header are compliant).

If the header did not match with a previous one, an error is logged.

The –export-csv-overwrite tag should be used if you want to delete the existing CSV file when Glances starts.

It is possible to remove some exported data using the –disable-plugin tag:

$ glances –export csv –export-csv-file /tmp/glances.csv –disable-plugin load,swap –quiet

or by only enable some plugins:

$ glances –export csv –export-csv-file /tmp/glances.csv –disable-plugin all –enable-plugin cpu,mem,load –quiet
