PMS/PyPubSub (short for Python Message Service / Python based Publish Subscribe) is a framework for implementing a publish subscribe mechanism into a Python application. A python process somewhere in the network publishes one or more topics which consist of Python objects. Multiple processes in the network can subscribe to fresh updates of the published topics. A publisher and its subsribers are fully decoupled. The datatype of a topic can be freely defined and changed at runtime. New publishers and subscribers can easily be added at runtime.
Linux Process Explorer is a graphical process explorer for Linux. It shows process information such as a process tree, TCP IP connections, and graphical performance figures for processes. It aims to mimic Windows procexp from sysinternals, and is more usable than top and ps. Its unique feature is the ability to measure and trend the TCP/IP output of a process.
