Thanks for a great question and more so, for introducing me to new tools

Perhaps you or someone on list knows how to chase down a problem I once saw:

 - a process was spawning/forking processes as fast as the system
   could do it.
   On Solaris I didn't have a good tool to identify the problem or
   find the process quickly  :-(

What do I use everyday?

 - top, lsof, traceroute/tracepath, nmap, tcpdump
 - ssh & rsync + the shell :-)
