Django-app for collecting information from running django processes.

branch: master
README.creole

django-processinfo is a reuseable Django application for collecing information about the running server processes. We try to cause as little additional overhead: django-processinfo creates most of the time only one database query to update the data.

The most important data that django-processinfo will be captured:

  • Process statistics:
    • process PID, start time, life times
    • Number of average/max living processes
    • min/average/max response times
    • Total request/exceptions count
  • Memory statistics:
    • min/average/max memory usage (VmRSS, VmPeak)
  • System informations:
    • System memory usage
    • Swap usage
    • load average

django-processinfo splits some of these data per SITE_ID, so you can see e.g. which site is mostly used.

What is it not:

limitation

This only works, if /proc/$$/status exists. So only on unix/linux like platforms, yet.

TODO

Add unittests

screenshots

Here some screenshots (from v0.2 - 19.08.2011) how it looks like:

install

1. install it e.g.:

pip install django-processinfo

2. add settings (see below)

3. create tables (run syncdb)

settings

add this to your settings.py:

import os

import django_processinfo


INSTALLED_APPS = (
	...
	'django_processinfo',
	...
)

MIDDLEWARE_CLASSES = (
    'django_processinfo.middlewares.django_processinfo.ProcessInfoMiddleware',
    ...
)

# Put templates above admin contrib, e.g.:
TEMPLATE_DIRS = (
	...
    os.path.join(os.path.abspath(os.path.dirname(django_processinfo.__file__)), "templates/"),
    ...
)

# include app settings from ./django_processinfo/app_settings.py
from django_processinfo import app_settings as PROCESSINFO

# Change settings like this:
PROCESSINFO.ADD_INFO = True

ProcessInfoMiddleware

The ProcessInfoMiddleware can actually be inserted anywhere. However, it should be added far above. Thus, to capture everything.

For performance enhancement, you can put ProcessInfoMiddleware after LocalSyncCacheMiddleware. But then, however, lacks statistical values on every cache hit!

app settings

Available django-processinfo settings can you found in ./django_processinfo/app_settings.py
