Where to start?

If this is your first time hearing about sysdig, we recommend you start with the website.

What does sysdig do and why should I use it?

Sysdig captures system calls and other system level events using a linux kernel facility called tracepoints, providing a rich set of real-time, system-level information.

Sysdig "packetizes" this information, so that you can do things like save it into trace files and easily filter it, a bit like you would do with tcpdump. This makes it very flexible to explore what processes are doing.

Sysdig is also packed with a set of scripts called Chisels that make it easier to extract useful information and do troubleshooting.

Sysdig is designed from the ground up for minimal overhead and is production ready.
