Author Topic: Checking running Genero-Programs on Client-Side  (Read 7404 times)

Hello,

If Programs running in container Mode I can check if there are running childs of the container before stopping the Parent-Program
(IF ui.Interface.getChildCount()>0 THEN    Ö)

Thatís OK and works fine.

Is the a way to check the same, without running the Program in Container-Mode ?

In our case the user has first to Close all Programs before closing our Menu-Program.

(We donít want to check running processes on the Server-Side or set those Information in a database table)

Thanks in Advance.

Kind regards


Stefan Serwe

Interesting question... I have two similar cases, in one of them i need to check if the program is already running, because users must only run one instance of the program. In the other case, i run multiple instances of a program for performance propose (each instance connect to one of multiple servers to run some querys) and i need to control the amount of instances to avoid a overload.

In both cases i check the processes on the server side using the "ps -ef" Linux command, but will be better to have a built-in command to check this.

Hi Stefan, Hi Anderson,

Since each process is independent, there is no easy solution and there is no existing frontcall achieving this on the client side.

The only suggestion I have is to add a popup menu when closing your menu application for asking user to check that other programs are correctly closed and that he really wants to quit.

Best regards,

Well, in that case i will leave my contribution with the function we use here to count running instances of a given program, using a Linux command...

You basically do a ps -ef and grep the program name, read the response and discard lines with the program name that don't actually indicate that the program is running. Replace <program name> with the name of the program you want to count.

Code
  1. private function count()
  2.  
  3.    define l_command    string
  4.    define l_line       string
  5.    define ch           base.Channel
  6.    define l_count      smallint
  7.    define l_aux        string
  8.  
  9.    let l_count = 0
  10.    let ch = base.Channel.create()
  11.  
  12.    let l_command = 'ps -ef | grep <program name>'
  13.  
  14.    call ch.openPipe(l_command, "r")
  15.  
  16.    while ch.read(l_line)
  17.  
  18.        if   l_line.getIndexOf("gsproxy-bin",1) > 0 or
  19.             l_line.getIndexOf(l_aux,1) > 0 or
  20.             l_line.getIndexOf("sh -c ps -ef",1) > 0 or
  21.             l_line.getIndexOf("grep <program name>",1) > 0
  22.          then
  23.             continue while
  24.        end if
  25.  
  26.        let l_count = l_count + 1
  27.  
  28.    end while
  29.  
  30.    call ch.close()
  31.  
  32.    return l_count
  33.  
  34. end function
  35.
