Project continued at github, see

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

User Reviews

  • Brilliant potential. Slick as is but can use some improvements and if moved to GitHib, might draw some community contribs to keep it alive. Stagnating here clearly alas.Has real potential to be a standard part of distros like Ubuntu in time and with a little effort and polish.

  • cool

  • It seems this could just be the product I need... Only problem is that is not installable. On ubuntu it has unmet dependencies - schedutils. I installed them manually (from SF sources), but I still can't install it. Could you please fix this...

  • Great tool. Much appreciated! Being a user of Windows Process Explorer there are two features that I would like to politely request: 1) The ability to see memory usage in the main view 2) The ability to sort columns with a click... partly to make use of 1) and see which process is using the most memory.

  • What I like about this tool is the details it shows per process. It allows you to see resource history graphs per process for example. This is a great tool for developers and tweakers.
