pylibpcap and multiple threads

P: n/a
Hi All!

Sorry if this is not the correct forum for this kind of question (I did
not find any pylibpcap related lists).

I am trying to use pylibpcap to capture network traffic from several
ethernet devices at the same time, each nic having a separate thread
assigned to it.

My problem is that when one thread is blocking inside pcap.loop() for
instance, it seems to have acquired the GIL, so that no other threads
can run.

Does anyone know a way to do this with threads, or is the only way to
have separate processes for each NIC?

Regards,

Örjan Gustavsson
