    3. Sysdig is open source, system-level exploration: capture system state and activity from a running Linux instance, then save, filter and analyze. Think of it as strace + tcpdump + lsof + awesome sauce. With a little Lua cherry on top.

      GUI companion to lsof, not so much an alternative this is Java code that gives some interaction to an otherwise pretty basic command showing open files "lsof"
