i think we need article talking about trace it will be benefits for all
While I'm thinking about it, another useful tracing tool is "strace" or "ptrace". These attach themselves to a running process and start dumping out a log of all the system calls they're doing.
Be prepared for huge volumes of output from some processes if they're active; I'd always run it with output to a file and use "tail -f strace.output" to watch the file. With strace/ptrace you should always be able to see what a runaway process is doing.
