psutil is a pypi component included in the Tidelift Subscription

Tidelift is working with the maintainers of psutil and a growing network of open source maintainers to ensure your open source software supply chain meets enterprise standards now and into the future.



With a comprehensive open source management solution like the Tidelift Subscription, organizations can efficiently manage the ways development teams use thousands of open source components across JavaScript, Java, Python, Swift, and Golang. (Beta-compatible with Rust, C#, Ruby, and PHP.) Improve the health, security, and resilience of the open source used in their applications with catalogs of known-good, proactively maintained open source components—backed by maintainers.

About psutil

psutil (process and system utilities) is a cross-platform library for retrieving information on running processes and system utilization (CPU, memory, disks, network, sensors) in Python.

psutil is useful mainly for system monitoring, profiling and limiting process resources and management of running processes. It implements many functionalities offered by UNIX command line tools such as: ps, top, lsof, netstat, ifconfig, who, df, kill, free, nice, ionice, iostat, iotop, uptime, pidof, tty, taskset, pmap.

psutil provides an interface with all the PC resources and processes, which helps gather data on a specific resource or manage a resource according to its state. Here are some cool things psutil can do:

  • Gather info on CPU boot time
  • Learn about disk space and memory state
  • Assess how many seconds of battery life is left
  • Measure the current CPU temperature

psutil has approximately 12 million downloads a month, and there are over 10,000 open source projects on GitHub that depend on psutil.

Tidelift works directly with the maintainer of psutil, Giampaolo RodolÄ‚ , to offer maintenance, code improvement, license verification, and security updates so you can use psutil for running processes and system utilization in your app.

You can learn more about psutil on the project repo.
