Proc::ProcessTable::Process - Perl process objects
$process->kill(9); $process->priority(19); $process->pgrp(500); $uid = $process->uid; ...
This is a stub module to provide OO process attribute access for Proc::ProcessTable. Proc::ProcessTable::Process objects are constructed directly by Proc::ProcessTable; there is no constructor method, only accessors.
Sends a signal to the process; just an aesthetic wrapper for perl's kill. Takes the signal (name or number) as an argument. Returns number of processes signalled.
Get/set accessor; if called with a numeric argument, attempts to reset the process's priority to that number using perl's <B>setpriority function. Returns the process priority.
Same as above for the process group.
- all other methods...
are simple accessors that retrieve the process attributes for which they are named. Currently supported are:
uid UID of process gid GID of process euid effective UID of process (Solaris only) egid effective GID of process (Solaris only) pid process ID ppid parent process ID spid sprod ID (IRIX only) pgrp process group sess session ID cpuid CPU ID of processor running on (IRIX only) priority priority of process ttynum tty number of process flags flags of process minflt minor page faults (Linux only) cminflt child minor page faults (Linux only) majflt major page faults (Linux only) cmajflt child major page faults (Linux only) utime user mode time (1/100s of seconds) (Linux only) stime kernel mode time (Linux only) cutime child utime (Linux only) cstime child stime (Linux only) time user + system time ctime child user + system time timensec user + system nanoseconds part (Solaris only) ctimensec child user + system nanoseconds (Solaris only) qtime cumulative cpu time (IRIX only) size virtual memory size (bytes) rss resident set size (bytes) wchan address of current system call fname file name start start time (seconds since the epoch) pctcpu percent cpu used since process started state state of process pctmem percent memory cmndline full command line of process ttydev path of process's tty clname scheduling class name (IRIX only)
