*Detect long-running processes and notify you when they're done.*
``longtroll`` pretty much does what it says on the box. In order to start
detecting long-running processes, run ``longtroll.py bind`` in your shell. From
then on, when a long-running process in that shell finishes, your notification
command will be called.
Before you start using ``longtroll``, you need to create a configuration file.
A sample configuration file can be found in the repository as
``longtrollrc-sample``. Copy this file to ``~/.longtrollrc``, or create your own.
The configuration file takes two options: ``seconds`` and ``notify``, as
notify echo <cmd> (pid <pid>) completed | wall
``seconds`` is the number of seconds that a process has to live before it is
considered "long-running". ``notify`` is a command that will be run when your
process completes. The tokens ``<cmd>`` and ``<pid>`` will automatically be replaced
by the command and the PID of the process that completed.
* Add a ``longtroll.py unbind`` command
* Allow configuration of the poll time
* Some kind of notification method for when a long-running process is detected
Download the file for your platform. If you're not sure which to choose, learn more about installing packages.
