Announcing sysdig: an open source Linux system exploration tool
From firstname.lastname@example.org@1:0/0 to All on Thu Apr 3 19:25:46 2014
Hi everyone - My name is Loris Degioanni, and I've spent a good part of the=
past decade working with my team on tools like Wireshark and WinPcap. We'r=
e now launching our third ambitious open source project, and this time we'r=
e focusing on system-level monitoring and troubleshooting. Our new tool is = called sysdig and we are delighted to present it to you today.
You can use sysdig to capture system state and activity from a running Linu=
x instance, then save, filter and explore. Think of it like strace + tcpdum=
p + lsof, with the ability to add Lua scripts on top. So far we've found it=
particularly useful in cloud and virtualized environments.
We've been working really hard on this, and we are very excited to bring it=
to you and hear what you think. I hope it makes your day a little better.
A final plug: if you do enjoy using sysdig, we need your help spreading the=
word. So please, share our blog, vote or comment on Reddit, star our githu=
b repo, tweet at us, or write a blog post.
