pidmon ====== pidmon is a collection of hacks to monitor running processes for activities, detecting when processes are created and destroyed and helping to wait for activity on a certain PID. Inspired by discussion on http://stackoverflow.com/questions/6102535/ Examples ======== Exploring the process tree: >>> p = pidmon.Process(1) >>> p.name 'init' >>> p.children [...] Waiting on processes: >>> pidmon.waitpid(5) # doesn't need to be be a child process >>> pidmon.waitpid(10001, recursive=True) # wait for process and any orphaned descendants You can also catch processes that are started indirectly, e.g. through a factory: >>> pidmon.waitpid(12345, graft_func=lambda p: p.name == 'gnome-terminal')
