Probing CPU & Memory Usage on Nodejitsu

Last month I released node-usage to probe CPU and Memory information using a valid PID. It was build on top of the /proc filesystem on Linux.

Motivation for the node-usage was to measure CPU and Memory usage on nodejs cloud platforms. But it didn’t work with Nodejitsu because they are using SmartOS (a flavor of Solaris).

Today, I release node-usage with solaris compatibility. And now it works on Nodejitsu.

See it in action.

Here is the sample app used on the video.
