Microsoft working on Sysinternals for Linux



Windows Subsystem for Linux is one of Microsoft’s success stories and has allowed developers to complete tasks using their Linux tools as easily from Windows as from a Linux desktop.

Microsoft is, however, also looking to make it easy for those used to Windows tools to be productive in the Linux environment and to help that cause Microsoft is porting their Sysinternals tools to Linux, starting with ProcDump for Linux, as revealed by Microsoft developer David Fowler.

ProcDump is a Linux reimagining of the classic ProcDump tool from the Sysinternals suite of tools for Windows. ProcDump provides a convenient way for Linux developers to create core dumps of their application based on performance triggers.

The tool currently supports Red Hat Enterprise Linux / CentOS 7, Fedora 26, Mageia 6 and Ubuntu 14.04 LTS, with other versions being tested.

Microsoft is currently working on ProcMon, according to Mario Hewardt is a Principal Developer Premier Field Engineer at Microsoft and author of Advanced Windows Debugging and Advanced .NET Debugging.
