A PHP library for the Glances XML/RPC API

What is Glances?

  • Glances is a CLI system monitor written in Python

What does this library do?

  • If Glances is run as glances -s then information can be retrieved from it using an XML/RPC API

Read the specification of the Glances API:

Dependencies: Per default, any extensions are useful. But if extensions PHP-Curl, PHP-JSON, PHP-SimpleXML and PHP-XML-RPC are load, then PHPGlances will be more optimal.

Example usage:

  include_once '../PHPGlances/PHPGlances.php';

  $oGlances = new PHPGlances('', 61209);
  $bAlive = $oGlances->pingServer();
    echo 'Can\'t connect to the server';
  } else {
    $res = $oGlances->listMethods();
    echo 'listMethods : ';
    echo '<ul>';
    foreach($res as $item){
      echo '<li>'.$item.'</li>';
    echo '</ul>';

    echo 'getCore : <br />';
    echo 'Core : '.$oGlances->getCore().'<br />';
    echo '<br />';
