Welcome to sysdig! Sysdig is a universal system visibility tool with native support for containers. If this is your first time trying to use sysdig, then you've come to the right place.


First, if you haven't already, you'll need to install sysdig.

Running Sysdig

The easiest way to get started using sysdig is with csysdig:

~$ csysdig

Csysdig is a simple, intuitive, and fully customizable curses UI for sysdig. We highly recommend you just try running csysdig and playing around with it for yourself. Here's an overview of csysdig including a video and the man page.

You can also run sysdig in its raw form:
