gopsutil: psutil for golang

https://circleci.com/gh/shirou/gopsutil.svg?&style=shield https://coveralls.io/repos/shirou/gopsutil/badge.svg?branch=master

This is a port of psutil (http://pythonhosted.org/psutil/). The challenge is porting all psutil functions on some architectures.

Breaking Changes!

Breaking changes is introduced at v2. See issue 174 .

Migrating to v2

On gopsutil itself, v2migration.sh is used for migration. It can not be commonly used, but it may help you with migration.

Tag semantics

gopsutil tag policy is almost same as Semantic Versioning, but automatically increase like Ubuntu versioning.

for example, v2.16.10 means

  • v2: major version
  • 16: release year, 2016
  • 10: release month

gopsutil aims to keep backwards-compatiblity until major version change.

Taged at every end of month, but there are only a few commits, it can be skipped.

Available Architectures

  • FreeBSD i386/amd64
  • Linux i386/amd64/arm(raspberry pi)
  • Windows/amd64
  • Darwin/amd64
  • OpenBDS amd64 (Thank you @mpfz0r!)

All works are implemented without cgo by porting c struct to golang struct.

Usage

Note: gopsutil v2 breaks compatibility. If you want to stay with compatibility, please use v1 branch and vendoring.

package main

import (
    "fmt"

    "github.com/shirou/gopsutil/mem"
)

func main() {
    v, _ := mem.VirtualMemory()

    // almost every return value is a struct
    fmt.Printf("Total: %v, Free:%v, UsedPercent:%f%%\n", v.Total, v.Free, v.UsedPercent)

    // convert to JSON. String() is also implemented
    fmt.Println(v)
}

The output is below.

Total: 3179569152, Free:284233728, UsedPercent:84.508194%
{"total":3179569152,"available":492572672,"used":2895335424,"usedPercent":84.50819439828305, (snip...)}

You can set an alternative location to /proc by setting the HOST_PROC environment variable.

You can set an alternative location to /sys by setting the HOST_SYS environment variable.

You can set an alternative location to /etc by setting the HOST_ETC environment variable.

Requirements

  • go1.5 or above is required.

More Info

Several methods have been added which are not present in psutil, but will provide useful information.

  • host/HostInfo() (linux)
    • Hostname
    • Uptime
    • Procs
    • OS (ex: "linux")
    • Platform (ex: "ubuntu", "arch")
    • PlatformFamily (ex: "debian")
    • PlatformVersion (ex: "Ubuntu 13.10")
    • VirtualizationSystem (ex: "LXC")
    • VirtualizationRole (ex: "guest"/"host")
  • cpu/CPUInfo() (linux, freebsd)
    • CPU (ex: 0, 1, ...)
    • VendorID (ex: "GenuineIntel")
    • Family
    • Model
    • Stepping
    • PhysicalID
    • CoreID
    • Cores (ex: 2)
    • ModelName (ex: "Intel(R) Core(TM) i7-2640M CPU @ 2.80GHz")
    • Mhz
    • CacheSize
    • Flags (ex: "fpu vme de pse tsc msr pae mce cx8 ...")
  • load/LoadAvg() (linux, freebsd)
    • Load1
    • Load5
    • Load15
  • docker/GetDockerIDList() (linux only)
    • container id list ([]string)
  • docker/CgroupCPU() (linux only)
    • user
    • system
  • docker/CgroupMem() (linux only)
    • various status
  • net_protocols (linux only)
    • system wide stats on network protocols (i.e IP, TCP, UDP, etc.)
    • sourced from /proc/net/snmp
  • iptables nf_conntrack (linux only)
    • system wide stats on netfilter conntrack module
    • sourced from /proc/sys/net/netfilter/nf_conntrack_count

Some codes are ported from Ohai. many thanks.
