I think that the number of processes forked per sec is a bit too high on one of the servers. How can I monitor what processes are spawned? Is there any tool that can help me? I know I can
strace a specific process looking for
fork(), but is there something similar that works system-wide?
I'd like to know at least the pid (and name) and it's ppid (and name of the parent).
I mean realtime monitoring of new
fork()s, not a snapshot of what's available now.
