procset is a pure python module to manage sets of closed intervals. It can be used as a small python library to manage sets of resources, and is especially useful when writing schedulers.


  • Free Software: licensed under LGPLv3 (see LICENSE.rst).

  • Pure Python module :)

  • Drop-in replacement for interval_set (see


  • The provided implementation target only Python 3 (I do not want to maintain old stuff :P).

  • The intervals bounds have to be non-negative integers.


  • setuptools>=34.4.0

Example use

What does it look like to use procset? Here is a simple example program:

from procset import ProcSet

free_cores = ProcSet((0, 7))  # I have 8 cores to work with

job_cores = ProcSet((2, 5))  # let's use some cores for a job
free_cores -= job_cores

print('remaining cores:', str(free_cores))

And it looks like this when run:

$ python
remaining cores: 0-1 6-7
