Dear brethren,

I'm looking for an elegant way of reading data from a file on one hand, and serve it (preferably through a websocket) on the other hand. So far I managed to solve elegantly the problem of reading the output from several programs simultaneously by using on of the big powers of Unix : named pipes. However now I'm stuck on the next part: serving data. As reading from a pipe is blocking, and so is listening to a socket, I don't know how to get out of this.

So here's the code:

#!/usr/bin/perl use strict; use warnings; use Data::Dumper; use Net::WebSocket::Server; use JSON; my %data; my $json; # Net::WebSocket::Server->new( # listen => 8080, # on_connect => sub { # my ($serv, $conn) = @_; # $conn->on( # handshake => sub { # my ($conn, $handshake) = @_; # }, # utf8 => sub { # my ($conn) = @_; # $_->send_utf8($json) for $conn->server->connections; # }, # ); # }, # )->start; open my $fh, '<', 'toto1' or die "can't open fifo toto1: $?"; while ( my $line = <$fh> ) { my @list = ( split /\s+/, $line ); # skip empty lines next if $#list <= 1; shift @list if $list[0] eq ''; # test for iostat header next if $list[0] eq 'avg-cpu:'; next if $list[0] eq 'Device:'; # test for vmstat header next if $list[0] eq 'procs'; if ( $#list == 11 ) { ( undef, $data{io}{ $list[0] }{rrqms}, $data{io}{ $list[0] }{wrqms}, $data{io}{ $list[0] }{reads}, $data{io}{ $list[0] }{writes}, $data{io}{ $list[0] }{rsecs}, $data{io}{ $list[0] }{wsecs}, $data{io}{ $list[0] }{avgrqsz}, $data{io}{ $list[0] }{avgqusz}, $data{io}{ $list[0] }{await}, $data{io}{ $list[0] }{svctm}, $data{io}{ $list[0] }{util} ) = @list; } elsif ( $#list == 15 ) { ( $data{vm}{r}, $data{vm}{b}, $data{vm}{swpd}, $data{vm}{free}, $data{vm}{buff}, $data{vm}{cache}, $data{vm}{swapin}, $data{vm}{swapout}, $data{vm}{ioin}, $data{vm}{ioout}, $data{vm}{sysin}, $data{vm}{syscs}, $data{vm}{user}, $data{vm}{sys}, $data{vm}{idle}, $data{vm}{wait} ) = @list; } elsif ( $#list == 5 ) { $data{vm}{nice} = $list[1]; } $json = encode_json( \%data); sleep 1; }

Of course the script work by commenting out one of the two loops, either the websocket one, or the file reading one. To use this script, create a named pipe

mkfifo toto1

run continuously vmstat and/or iostat and redirect their output to the pipe:

vmstat 3 |tee toto1

and

iostat -x 3 | tee toto1.

I don't know how to get any further from there... maybe golang? :)
