# Namespaces and tools

## lib/utils python utilities to be used as libraries

  • __fancylogger__: an extention of the default python logger designed to be easy to use and have a couple of fancy features.
  • custom specifiers for mpi loggin (the mpirank) with autodetection of mpi
  • custom specifier for always showing the calling function’s name
  • rotating file handler
  • a default formatter.
  • logging to an UDP server (logdaemon.py f.ex.)
  • easily setting loglevel
  • __daemon.py__ : Daemon class written by Sander Marechal (http://www.jejik.com) to start a python script as a daemon.
  • __missing.py__: Small functions and tools that are commonly used but not available in the Python (2.x) API.
  • ~~__cache.py__ : File cache to store pickled data identified by a key accompanied by a timestamp.~~ (moved to [vsc-utils](https://github.com/hpcugent/vsc-utils))
  • __generaloption.py__ : A general option parser for python. It will fetch options (in this order) from config files, from environment variables and from the command line and parse them in a way compatible with the default python optionparser. Thus allowing a very flexible way to configure your scripts. It also adds a few other useful extras.
  • __affinity.py__ : Linux cpu affinity.
  • Based on sched.h and bits/sched.h,
  • see man pages for sched_getaffinity and sched_setaffinity
  • also provides a cpuset class to convert between human readable cpusets and the bit version Linux priority
  • Based on sys/resources.h and bits/resources.h see man pages for getpriority and setpriority
  • __asyncprocess.py__ : Module to allow Asynchronous subprocess use on Windows and Posix platforms
  • __daemon.py__ : [A generic daemon class by Sander Marechal](http://www.jejik.com/articles/2007/02/a_simple_unix_linux_daemon_in_python/)
  • __dateandtime.py__ : A module with various convenience functions and classes to deal with date, time and timezone.
  • __nagios.py__ : This module provides functionality to cache and report results of script executions that can readily be interpreted by nagios/icinga.
  • __run.py__ : Python module to execute a command, can make use of asyncprocess, answer questions based on a dictionary
  • supports a whole lot of ways to input, process and output the command. (filehandles, PIPE, pty, stdout, logging…)
  • __mail.py__ : Wrapper around the standard Python mail library.
  • Send a plain text message
  • Send an HTML message, with a plain text alternative

## bin A collection of python scripts, these are examples of how you could use fancylogger to log to a daemon, but should not be used directly. - __logdaemon.py__: A daemon that listens on a port for udp packets and logs them to file, works toghether with fancylogger. - __startlogdaemon.py__ : Script that will start the logdaemon for you and set environment variables for fancylogger.
