Proc::ProcessTable::Process - Perl process objects



 $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.


kill 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.
priority 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.
pgrp 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)

  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

  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
