Hello, my name I'm Giampaolo Rodola. I'm a passionate Python core-developer, mostly known for being the author of psutil Python library. A lot of time (12 years) and effort went into making psutil as it is today. If you feel psutil is useful to you or your business and want to support its future development please consider donating me some money.

Python projects
  • psutil: a cross-platform library for retrieving information on running processes and system utilization (CPU, memory, disks, network) in Python which works on Linux, Windows, OSX, FreeBSD and Solaris. (2008 - now)
  • pyftpdlib: a very fast, asynchronous, pure-python FTP server. (2006 - now) 
  • pysendfile: a binding to sendfile(2) syscall which lets you send a file twice as fast as with a common socket. (2011 - now)
