heim is a fast and eventually fully-featured async library for the Rust programming language
intended to provide any possible information about the system it is running on.
At a high level, it provides information about:
- Networks (in progress)
- Processes (in progress)
- Virtualization (in progress)
- Windows services (in progress)
- Hardware sensors (in progress)
At the moment,
heim is in MVP phase, which means that there is only only partial support
for Tier 1
platforms (Linux, macOS, and Windows for
You can check the GitHub projects page
for more information.
In addition, it would be good to double check if the returned information is correct. You know, just in case.
heim also provides platform-specific APIs.
If you are browsing this documentation via docs.rs,

System processes information.
Measurement units used in API.
Virtualization system detection.
Any error which may happen during the data fetch.
