Windows system administrators are familiar with the free Sysinternals utility package. The first versions appeared in 2006 and are still being developed. Microsoft announced that developers are planning to port Sysinternals tools to Linux. The first utility ported was ProcDump. This is reported by Bleeping Computer.

ProcDump allows users to create crash or current dumps of processes in the system. These can be tasks that heavily load the CPU, causing a freeze or an error. ProcDump allows you to track such processes.

The program is available on GitHub and works under Red Hat Enterprise Linux / CentOS 7, Fedora 26, Mageia 6, Ubuntu 14.04 and 16.04. Available as source codes for self-assembly, and already compiled packages. Other utilities are not yet migrated.

So far, ProcDump for Linux is inferior in functionality to analogue on Windows. The utility creates in Linux dumps of CPU and memory usage at different time intervals.
