    There isn't a way to do this that i know of in java because java is meant to be platform independent, and a call like that would be different depending on what OS you're on. You'd have to use an external library such as JNI for something like that to call specific OS functions.

    Edit: I've never used this but it seems like it'd be helpful - Home - Sigar - Hyperic Support
