Process notifications for Go

Overview

The psnotify package captures process events from the kernel via kqueue on Darwin/BSD and the netlink connector on Linux.

The psnotify API is similar to the fsnotify package.

Example:

    watcher, err := psnotify.NewWatcher()
    if err != nil {
        log.Fatal(err)
    }

    // Process events
    go func() {
        for {
            select {
            case ev := <-watcher.Fork:
                log.Println("fork event:", ev)
            case ev := <-watcher.Exec:
                log.Println("exec event:", ev)
            case ev := <-watcher.Exit:
                log.Println("exit event:", ev)
            case err := <-watcher.Error:
                log.Println("error:", err)
            }
        }
    }()

    err = watcher.Watch(os.Getpid(), psnotify.PROC_EVENT_ALL)
    if err != nil {
        log.Fatal(err)
    }

    /* ... do stuff ... */
    watcher.Close()

Supported platforms

Currently targeting modern flavors of Darwin and Linux. Should work on BSD, but untested.

Types

type ProcEventExec

type ProcEventExec struct {
	Pid int // Pid of the process that called exec()
}

type ProcEventExit

type ProcEventExit struct {
	Pid int // Pid of the process that called exit()
}

type ProcEventFork

type ProcEventFork struct {
	ParentPid int // Pid of the process that called fork()
	ChildPid  int // Child process pid created by fork()
}

type Watcher

type Watcher struct {
	Error chan error          // Errors are sent on this channel
	Fork  chan *ProcEventFork // Fork events are sent on this channel
	Exec  chan *ProcEventExec // Exec events are sent on this channel
	Exit  chan *ProcEventExit // Exit events are sent on this channel
	// contains filtered or unexported fields
}

func NewWatcher

func NewWatcher() (*Watcher, error)

Initialize event listener and channels

func (*Watcher) Close

func (w *Watcher) Close() error

Closes the OS specific event listener, removes all watches and closes all event channels.

func (*Watcher) RemoveWatch

func (w *Watcher) RemoveWatch(pid int) error

Remove pid from the watched process set.

func (*Watcher) Watch

func (w *Watcher) Watch(pid int, flags uint32) error

Add pid to the watched process set. The flags param is a bitmask of process events to capture, must be one or more of: PROC_EVENT_FORK, PROC_EVENT_EXEC, PROC_EVENT_EXIT
