Those capabilities are very closely tied to the operating system. If you are using a friendly operating system, say Linux, you can access that information through the proc filesystem. If you are using an os that is unfriendly, say, Microsoft Windows, you will have to write native code to do the dirty work and use JNI to get it into Java..
