Anyone, any ideas if there is anything done in Lua which can read /proc from Linux or
sysctl interface from *BSD systems. Im interested to use Lua to fetch system statistics:

 * cpu, memory utilization
 * disk, nic utilization

and find out if I could port some of the Kronometrix perl data recorders to Lua. I want to
make the data recorder package even smaller but keep a scripting language rather than
use C.

Many thanks,

There is a whole project "Heka" that is for reading misc stats files, log outputs etc.

You can check out some of the example sources:
