Hello all,
I'm glad to announce the release of psutil 5.7.3:'s a blog post explaining the highlights in detail:


psutil (process and system utilities) is a cross-platform library for retrieving information on running processes and system utilization (CPU, memory, disks, network) in Python. It is useful mainly for system monitoring, profiling and limiting process resources and management of running processes. It implements many functionalities offered by command line tools such as: ps, top, lsof, netstat, ifconfig, who, df, kill, free, nice, ionice, iostat, iotop, uptime, pidof, tty, taskset, pmap. It currently supports Linux, Windows, macOS, Sun Solaris, FreeBSD, OpenBSD, NetBSD and AIX, both 32-bit and 64-bit architectures.  Supported Python versions are 2.6, 2.7 and 3.4+. PyPy is also known to work.
