Hello all, I'm glad to announce the release of psutil 5.5.0: https://github.com/giampaolo/psutil
psutil (process and system utilities) is a cross-platform library for retrieving information on running processes and system utilization (CPU, memory, disks, network) in Python. It is useful mainly for system monitoring, profiling and limiting process resources and management of running processes. It implements many functionalities offered by command line tools such as: ps, top, lsof, netstat, ifconfig, who, df, kill, free, nice, ionice, iostat, iotop, uptime, pidof, tty, taskset, pmap. It currently supports Linux, Windows, macOS, Sun Solaris, FreeBSD, OpenBSD, NetBSD and AIX, both 32-bit and 64-bit architectures, with Python versions from 2.6 to 3.6. PyPy is also known to work.
