A memory limiting tool for Supervisor.
mannhunter [--config PATH] [--host RIEMANN_HOST] [--port RIEMANN_PORT]
Mannhunter can be started with or without a configuration file. By default, it will restart any programs running under Supervisor if they use more than 80% of the systems total memory. Limits for individual programs can be specified in an optional configuration file - an example configuration is provided in
Mannhunter can be installed from pip:
pip install mannhunter
If you want to install Mannhunter with a system package manager, fpm is recommended. For example:
fpm -s python -t rpm mannhunter rpm -i python-mannhunter-0.0.0-1.noarch.rpm
psutil package uses C extensions, and installing the package from source or with a python package manager (such as
pip) will require build tools. Alternatively, it can be installed from your distribution's repositories (
python-psutil on Debian and CentOS). Superman currently uses a very old version of
psutil so as to remain compatible with CentOS.
Mannhunter is developed and tested on Python 2.6. There are no plans to release it for Python 3, as Google's
protobuf library (and therefore
riemann-client) are only compatible with Python 2.
