Sysdig looks like it could be a useful addition to a sysadmins list of tools, it is described as;

Sysdig is open source, system-level exploration: capture system state and activity from a running Linux instance, then save, filter and analyze. Think of it as strace + tcpdump + lsof + awesome sauce. With a little Lua cherry on top.

It’s easy to install ….

curl -s https://s3.amazonaws.com/download.draios.com/stable/install-sysdig | sudo bash

…. and even easier to run ….

I wish I had something this straight forward when I was doing syadmin work as a day job, you youngsters don’t know how good you have it.
