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=/
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).
