Sysdig for EL5 #60
We're aware of that, and unfortunately is not an issue easy to solve: sysdig relies on a kernel feature called tracepoints that was introduced in 2.3.32, and the first EL distribution to ship this kernel is EL6.
I'm afraid our team won't be able to spend time on this (unless there are a reasonable amount of requests from the community), but we'll be happy to accept pull requests and/or tutorials in our wiki to guide through the process of patching the kernel on EL5 and compiling sysdig, if it turns out to be possible (which again, I doubt).
The other alternative would be try to backport a kernel version >= 2.6.32 to EL5, that might be easier.
CloudLinux 5 servers using a "Hybrid" kernel currently run 2.6.32 - there are probably a lot of these about.

Then it should be doable, you might just have to upgrade GCC (which can live in a sandbox), see if this helps:
