Just something I was playing around with today that I thought I might share.
I was curious about how to get network statistics in windows so I've been reading MSDN all day trying to work it out. I've written a little bit of python using the
ctypes module to access the API on network statistics. All I can say is that doing these things on Linux is so much easier as you can just access the
/proc directory and parse the system files there that contain such information.
