Sysdig history infographic

I’m proud to announce today that sysdig, the open source linux system visibility tool, has surpassed a million downloads(). I use a () because we’re likely much, much higher – we cannot count the installs where we are prepackaged with OS distributions like Ubuntu, Debian, Fedora or CentOS although we can for Docker Hub. It’s extra special that I’m making this announcement on the day of our first user conference here in San Francisco.

As a way to look at what we’ve accomplished together, I wanted to show you how the capabilities of sysdig evolved over the past couple of years.

Just wanted to thank the thousands of people who have given feedback on sysdig, and the contributors who have pushed this project forward. I know I speak for everyone at Sysdig when I say that it’s the time we spend with the community that gives us the energy to keep building. Happy digging!
