Announcing sysdig: an open source Linux system exploration tool

Do you have a question? Post it now! No Registration Necessary.  Now with pictures!

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.

Many thanks,

Loris Degioanni
