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:
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 RodolĂ , to offer maintenance, code improvement, license verification, and security updates so you can use psutil for running processes and system utilization in your app.
