Sysdig Open Source
Sysdig captures system calls and events from the Linux kernel.
You can save, filter, and analyze the data with our CLI or our desktop app.
Think of sysdig as strace + tcpdump + htop + iftop + lsof + wireshark for your entire system.
We built sysdig to give you easy access to the actual behavior of your Linux systems and containers. Honestly, the best way to understand sysdig is to try it – its super easy! Or here’s a quick video introduction to csysdig, the simple, intuitive, and fully customizable curses-based UI for sysdig.
Far too often, system-level monitoring and troubleshooting still involves logging into a machine with SSH and using a plethora of dated tools with very inconsistent interfaces. And many of these classic Linux tools breakdown completely in containerized environments. Sysdig unites your Linux toolkit into a single, consistent, easy-to-use interface. And sysdig’s unique architecture allows deep inspection into containers, right out of the box, without having to instrument the containers themselves in any way.
Sysdig instruments your physical and virtual machines at the OS level by installing into the Linux kernel and capturing system calls and other OS events. Sysdig also makes it possible to create trace files for system activity, similarly to what you can do for networks with tools like tcpdump and Wireshark. This way, problems can be analyzed at a later time, without losing important information. Rich system state is stored in the trace files, so that the captured activity can be put into full context.
