Glsof is two separate utilities (Queries & FileMonitor) to the command line utility Lsof by Vic Abell. Both applications are written in Java. Another fundamental requirement is the command line Lsof that has to be installed on your system. Lsof is supported by most of the Unix/Linux systems including Mac Os X.
Filemonitor monitors the activity of files, processes and network connections in ‘real time’ via lsof, returning them in a list. One of its main features is the possibility to control a remote system running it as “client” (included Windows systems) and a separate “server” on the target system. More information here.
Queries manages multiple queries for Lsof, returning output in different tables. Please note that work on a new version is in progress at the moment. More information here.
Finally Filemonitor 2.1.0 has been released. Different bugs fixed, some new stuff added:
- Copy preference
- Tool tips on the Preference Dialog
- Error messages displayed
- Other minor bugs
Finally I got there :)
Filemonitor 2.0 is a particularly important release as it lets you monitor your remote systems now. The only thing you have to do is to run “remote-lsof” on the machine you want to monitor and configuring Filemonitor with a “Preference” pointing to the remote machine. Please read documentation for more info about setting up remote configuration.
