Project description

Easy to use

>>> from procfs import Proc
>>> proc = Proc()

>>> proc.loadavg
{'average': {1: 0.0, 5: 0.0, 15: 0.0},
 'entities': {'current': 1, 'total': 117},
  'last_pid': 3068}

>>> proc.net.dev.eth1.receive.bytes
117997558

>>> proc.meminfo.MemFree
57044

>>> proc.net.snmp.Udp
{'InDatagrams': 3394, 'OutDatagrams': 3399, 'RcvbufErrors': 0,
 'InErrors': 0, 'SndbufErrors': 0, 'NoPorts': 4}

Process information

>>> proc.self
<Process 3068: python>

>>> proc.self.parent
<Process 17423: bash>

>>> proc.self.uptime
datetime.timedelta(0, 346, 380262)

>>> proc.processes
<Processes: [<Process 1: init>, <Process 2: kthreadd>, <Process 3: migration/0>, <Process 4: ksoftirqd/0>, <Process 5: watchdog/0>, <Process 6: migration/1>, <Process 7: ksoftirqd/1>, <Process 8: watchdog/1>, <Process 9: events/0>, <Process 10: events/1>, ...]>
>>> len(proc.processes)
110

>>> proc.processes.cmdline('(vim|ssh)')
<Processes: [<Process 2956: vim>, <Process 3044: vim>, <Process 3136: vim>, <Process 10422: sshd>, <Process 10440: sshd>, <Process 10504: sshd>]>

>>> proc.processes.uid(1000)
<Processes: [<Process 1120: bash>, <Process 2593: bash>, <Process 2956: vim>, <Process 3044: vim>, <Process 3093: python>, <Process 10504: sshd>, <Process 10505: bash>, <Process 10875: screen>, <Process 10876: screen>, <Process 12908: bash>, ...]>
