A memory limiting tool for Supervisor.




The psutil package uses C extensions, and installing the package from source or with a python package manager (such as pip) will require build tools. Alternatively, it can be installed from your distribution’s repositories (python-psutil on Debian and CentOS). Superman currently uses a very old version of psutil so as to remain compatible with CentOS.

Mannhunter is developed and tested on Python 2.6. There are no plans to release it for Python 3, as Google’s protobuf library (and therefore riemann-client) are only compatible with Python 2.
