Schottky monitors are used to determine important beam parameters in a non-destructive way. In this paper we present improved processing of the transverse and longitudinal Schottky signals from a hi-Q resonant 2.07 GHz cavity and transverse signals from a low-Q 245 MHz cavity with the main focus on providing the real-time measurement of beam tune, chromaticity and emittance during injection and ramp when the beam condition is changing rapidly. The analysis and control is done in python using
