maestral.utils.integration

This module provides functions for platform integration. Most of the functionality here could also be achieved with psutils but we want to avoid the large dependency.

maestral.utils.integration.get_ac_state()[source]

Checks if the current device has AC power or is running on battery.

Returns

True if the device has AC power, False otherwise.

Return type

maestral.utils.integration.ACState

class maestral.utils.integration.ACState(value)[source]

Bases: enum.Enum

Enumeration of AC power states

Connected = 'Connected'
Disconnected = 'Disconnected'
Undetermined = 'Undetermined'
maestral.utils.integration.get_inotify_limits()[source]

Returns the current inotify limit settings as tuple.

Returns

(max_user_watches, max_user_instances, max_queued_events)

Raises

OSError – if the settings cannot be read from /proc/sys/fs/inotify. This may happen if /proc/sys is left out of the kernel image or simply not mounted.

Return type

Tuple[int, int, int]

maestral.utils.integration.cpu_usage_percent(interval=0.1)[source]

Returns a float representing the CPU utilization of the current process as a percentage. This duplicates the similar method from psutil to avoid the psutil dependency.

Compares process times to system CPU times elapsed before and after the interval (blocking). It is recommended for accuracy that this function be called with an interval of at least 0.1 sec.

A value > 100.0 can be returned in case of processes running multiple threads on different CPU cores. The returned value is explicitly NOT split evenly between all available logical CPUs. This means that a busy loop process running on a system with 2 logical CPUs will be reported as having 100% CPU utilization instead of 50%.

Parameters

interval (float) – Interval in sec between comparisons of CPU times.

Returns

CPU usage during interval in percent.

Return type

float

maestral.utils.integration.check_connection(hostname, timeout=2)[source]

A low latency check for an internet connection.

Parameters
  • hostname (str) – Hostname to use for connection check.

  • timeout (int) – Timeout in seconds for connection check.

Returns

Connection availability.

Return type

bool
