    Question How to query CPU usage, memory status, HDD status on WIN/LINUX

    Hello fellows,

    Does somebody know if there are specific Qt methods to query hardware status (CPU usage, memory and HDD statuses) on Windows and Linux platforms or there is no way to avoid implementation using native APIs?

    Thanks in advance!

    Hi, on Linux you can read the files in /proc to get those values.
    On Windows you will have to use the native API.
