Linux Process Explorer

procexp

Linux Process Explorer (procexp) is a graphical equivalent to the venerable top utility. This application enables fine grained examination of processes, threads, resource usage per process and figures about IO and TCP/IP traffic usage per process.

procexp also provides information about system resources that are available. It aims to mimic Windows procexp from sysinternals, and aims to be more usable than top and ps, especially for advanced users. The utility is targeted at advanced system administrators trying to analyze on a process level what is going on in a production server, and software developers analyzing the throughput of their processes.
