Project Description

System Metrics/Stats Library for Linux

https://travis-ci.org/cgoldberg/linux-metrics.png

Description

linux-metrics is a Python package containing modules for getting OS metrics on systems running the Linux kernel. It is a pure python library with no external dependencies.

Basic stats for major subsystems are provided (Processor/CPU, Disk, Memory, Network).

Install from PyPI

  • pip install linux-metrics

Requirements

  • Python 2.6/2.7/3.1/3.2/3.3/PyPy
  • Linux 2.6+

Example Usage

print number of processes running:

from linux_metrics import cpu_stat

print cpu_stat.procs_running()

print CPU utilization every 5 secs:

>>> from linux_metrics import cpu_stat
>>>
>>> while True:
...     cpu_pcts = cpu_stat.cpu_percents(5)
...     print 'cpu utilization: %.2f%%' % (100 - cpu_pcts['idle'])
...
cpu utilization: 0.70%
cpu utilization: 0.50%
cpu utilization: 24.80%
cpu utilization: 20.89%
cpu utilization: 40.04%

Unit Tests

You can run the included unit tests and verify all cases pass in your environment:

$ nosetests

Note: you may need to adjust the configuration of the unit tests to match your environment. They are set by default to use:

DISK_DEVICE = 'sda1'

NETWORK_INTERFACE = 'eth0'
