I'm glad to announce the release of psutil 4.4.0:
Detailed blog post is here:
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, OSX, Sun Solaris, FreeBSD, OpenBSD and
NetBSD, both 32-bit and 64-bit architectures, with Python versions from 2.6
to 3.5 (users of Python 2.4 and 2.5 may use 2.1.3 version). PyPy is also
known to work.
- #874: [Windows] net_if_addrs() returns also the netmask.
- #887: [Linux] virtual_memory()'s 'available' and 'used' values are more
precise and match "free" cmdline utility. "available" also takes into
account LCX containers preventing "available" to overflow "total".
- #891: procinfo.py script has been updated and provides a lot more info.
- #514: [OSX] possibly fix Process.memory_maps() segfault (critical!).
- #783: [OSX] Process.status() may erroneously return "running" for zombie
- #798: [Windows] Process.open_files() returns and empty list on Windows 10.
- #825: [Linux] cpu_affinity; fix possible double close and use of unopened
- #880: [Windows] Handle race condition inside psutil_net_connections.
- #885: ValueError is raised if a negative integer is passed to
- #892: [Linux] Process.cpu_affinity([-1]) raise SystemError with no error
set; now ValueError is raised.
- #906: [BSD] disk_partitions(all=False) returned an empty list. Now the
argument is ignored and all partitions are always returned.
- #907: [FreeBSD] Process.exe() may fail with OSError(ENOENT).
- #908: [OSX, BSD] different process methods could errounesuly mask the real
error for high-privileged PIDs and raise NoSuchProcess and AccessDenied
instead of OSError and RuntimeError.
- #909: [OSX] Process open_files() and connections() methods may raise
OSError with no exception set if process is gone.
- #916: [OSX] fix many compilation warnings.
