Nodejs process monitoring tool. This module currently works only on LINUX. This module spawns a thread and begins monitoring the process.

It looks up /proc/ files on the system to report CPU Usage. It looks up /proc/pid/ files on the system to report its own stats. It calls the process.monitor.* methods to report total requests, open connections and total data transferred.

process.monitor.* methods are set by lib/monitor.js.

Here is the list of data the module reports periodically:

 { status: 
     { pid: <pid of the node process>,
       ts: <current time stamp>,
       cluster: <process group id>,
       reqstotal: <total requests processed by this node process server>,
       utcstart: <when the process was started>,
       events: <number of new reports being processed since last stats reporting>,,
       cpu: <cpu usage>,
       mem: <memory usage>,
       cpuperreq: <cpu usage per request>,
       oreqs: <current open requests count>,
       sys_cpu: <system cpu load>,
       oconns: <current open connections count>,
       user_cpu: <user cpu load>,
       rps: <requests per second>,
       kbs_out: <kbs of data transferred since last stats reporting>,
       elapsed: <time elapsed since last event>,
       kb_trans: <total kbs of data transferred>,
       jiffyperreq: <cpu usage in terms of ticks per request> 

This package is tested only with Node versions 8 and 10.
