       lbcdclient - Query a remote lbcd daemon for system load


       lbcdclient [-2] [-s service[,service ...]] host ...


       lbcdclient sends a query packet to a remote lbcd server and prints the
       results.  The result output will look something like this:

           btime 1092858021 ctime 1092960298 utime 1092955199
           load l1 96 l5 69 l15 57
           total 0 unique 0 console 0
           tmp full 0 P_tmpdir full 2
           services 0 pads 0 0
           service 0: weight 1 increment 1

       btime is the time of the last system boot in seconds since epoch.
       ctime is the current system time in seconds since epoch.  utime is the
       last modification time of the information about logged in users in
       seconds since epoch.

       The load line gives the one-minute (l1), five-minute (l5), and fifteen-
       minute (l15) load averages, multiplied by 100.

       The next line gives the count of logged-in users.  total gives the
       count of all logged-in users, unique lists the total number of unique
       users, and console is 1 if a user is logged in to the console of the

       tmp full is the percentage used in the system /tmp directory and
       P_tmpdir full is the percentage full in the system /var/tmp directory.

       Finally, the last lines give information for each service, using the
       extended service response for the version three packet format.  The
       first line gives the count of number of configured services minus one.
       (The pads numbers are reserved space in the packet and will generally
       always be zero.)  Then, each subsequent line lists the weights and
       increments for each service lbcd is monitoring on the system.

       If the -2 option is used, lbcdclient will send a version two packet
       instead, and the returned results will not include the services line
       and everything after that.


       -2  Send a version two protocol packet instead of a version three
           packet.  Version two doesn’t support the separate service weights.

       -s service,[service ...]
           Request information for the specified service names.  It’s not
           entirely clear whether this works correctly.
