Detailed Description

ProcessStatus provides information about the process of a given application.

You can use it alongside a Timer, for instance, to periodically query the status of an application process.

import QtQuick 2.11
import QtApplicationManager 2.0
import QtApplicationManager.SystemUI 2.0

Item {
    id: root
    property var application: ApplicationManager.get(0)
    ...
    ProcessStatus {
        id: processStatus
        applicationId: root.application.id
    }
    Timer {
        interval: 1000
        running: root.visible && root.application.runState === Am.Running
        repeat: true
        onTriggered: processStatus.update()
    }
    Text {
        text: "PSS.total: " + (processStatus.memoryPss.total / 1e6).toFixed(0) + " MB"
    }
}

You can also use this type as a data source for MonitorModel, if you want to plot its previous values over time:

import QtQuick 2.11
import QtApplicationManager 2.0
import QtApplicationManager.SystemUI 2.0
...
MonitorModel {
    running: true
    ProcessStatus {
        applicationId: "some.app.id"
    }
}

The following are the keys supported in the memory properties (memoryVirtual, memoryRss, and memoryPss):

KeyDescription
totalThe total amount of memory used, in bytes.
textThe amount of memory used by the code section, in bytes.
heapThe amount of memory used by the heap, in bytes. The heap is private, dynamically allocated memory, for example through malloc or mmap on Linux.

Property Documentation

applicationId : string

Holds the ID of the application whose process is to be monitored. This ID must be one that is known to the application manager (applicationIds() provides a list of valid IDs). There is one exception: if you want to monitor the System UI's process, set the ID to an empty string. In single-process mode, the System UI process is the only valid process, since all applications run within this process.

See also ApplicationObject.


[read-only] cpuLoad : real

This property holds the process' CPU utilization during the previous measurement interval, when update() was last called. A value of 0 means the process was idle; a value of 1 means the process used the equivalent of one core, which may be split across several cores.

See also ProcessStatus::update.


[read-only] memoryPss : var

A map of the process' Proportional Set Size (PSS) memory usage. This is the proportional share of the RSS value in ProcessStatus::memoryRss. For instance, if two processes share 2 MB, then the RSS value is 2 MB for each process; the PSS value is 1 MB for each process. As the name implies, the code section of shared libraries is generally shared between processes. Memory may also be shared by other means provided by the OS, for example, through mmap on Linux. For more information, see the table of supported keys.

Calling ProcessStatus::update() updates the value of this property.

See also ProcessStatus::update().


memoryReportingEnabled : bool

A boolean value that determines whether the memory properties are refreshed each time update() is called. The default value is true. In your System UI, the process of determining memory consumption adds additional load to the CPU, affecting the cpuLoad value. If cpuLoad needs to be kept accurate, consider disabling memory reporting.


[read-only] memoryRss : var

A map of the process' Resident Set Size (RSS) memory usage. This is the amount of memory that is actually mapped to physical RAM. For more information, see the table of supported keys.

Calling ProcessStatus::update() updates the value of this property.

See also ProcessStatus::update().


[read-only] memoryVirtual : var

A map of the process's virtual memory usage. For example, the total amount of virtual memory is provided through memoryVirtual.total. For more information, see the table of supported keys.

Calling ProcessStatus::update() updates the value of this property.

See also ProcessStatus::update().


[read-only] processId : int

This property holds the OS-specific process identifier (PID) that is monitored. It can be used by external tools, for example. The property is 0, if there is no process associated with the applicationId. In particular, if the application manager runs in single-process mode, only the System UI has an associated process. The System UI is always identified by an empty applicationId.


[read-only] roleNames : list<string>

Names of the roles that ProcessStatus provides when used as a data source for MonitorModel.

See also MonitorModel.


Signal Documentation

memoryReportingChanged(memoryVirtual, memoryRss, memoryPss)

This signal is emitted after update() has been called and the memory usage values have been refreshed. The arguments are key-value pairs with the keys listed in the table above.


Method Documentation

update()

Updates the cpuLoad, memoryVirtual, memoryRss, and memoryPss properties.
