Monitoring running python scripts

Hi there,

I wonder if it is possible to monitor running Python scripts.

I saw that with system monitor you can monitor processes but that’s not enough for me:-)

You can do it with a command line sensor. I monitor services with this, but you can adjust the command to detect ordinary processes

  - platform: command_line
    name: "appdaemon status"
    command: systemctl show appdaemon@$USER.service | awk -F= '/^SubState=/ {print $2}'
    scan_interval: 60

This is a good idea and works.
My new command line sensor looks like this:

  - platform: command_line
    name: hareadsensorspy
    command: "ps -aef  | grep -i 'python3 /home/pi/'"
    scan_interval: 60
    value_template: >-
        {% if states.sensor.hareadsensorspy.state[:7] == "homeass" %}
        {% else %}
        {% endif %}
