Graphical process explorer for Linux. Shows process information: process tree, TCP IP connections and graphical performance figures for processes. Aims to mimic Windows procexp from sysinternals, and aims to be more usable than top and ps, especially for advanced users.
Audience for this tool:
* Advanced system administrators trying to analyze on process level what is going on in a production server;
* Software developers analyzing the troughput of their process: e.g. TCP throughput, memory usage, memory leaks;
The most advanced feature is the monitoring of TCP/IP traffic figures, for each SINGLE process (actual connections and throughput). As far as known no other tool has this capability. In the process tree, use the right mouse button to monitor process details.
- Graphical performance figures
- Hierarchical process tree, showing creation and destruction of processes
- per process TCP/IP UDP connection and troughput monitoring
- Environment variable display
- Easy process tree kill using popup menu
Nice tool! Thanks! Compared to • htop: procexp is much more powerful and usable • gnome-system-monitor: procexp is much more powerful, less CPU load • ksysguard: procexp is much more powerful Some features are still missing as of march 2012, but procexp is improving…
Much better than Gnome System Monitor (which keeps going back to the top whenever it refreshes). One very easy improvement that should be done NOW... add a readme file to the source that says run "./procexp.sh" to run the program (from the source).
Very useful project! It's improved day by day.
I'm glad such project has started and looks usable already
Waited long for this. I'm not a frequent Linux user but I know about processes/threads/load/.. in general and want to be able to monitor processes running on Linux without having to know about where and how to get the information.
This is clearly designed with Ubuntu in mind, however I got it working in Debian. I had to install libqwt5-qt4, python-qt4, and python-qwt5-qt4 (and dependencies) in my package manager first, then used dpkg to install this .deb. I like it, but it would be nice to have more column options. "Network Delta Total Bytes" for example would allow you to see which processes were currently using the network the most.
