monitoring software


i'd like to have some tool to monitor the processes and the file reads and writes.
under windows, there are the systernals softwares to do just that:
Process Explorer to show all the processes in parent-child hierarchy, view all the process info, the security, the handles, the libraries, dependencies, opened files, current operation, context switches and so on;
File Monitor to see all the accesses to files by any program, reads, opens, writes, with filter capabilities

is there anything on linux?
for the files i havent seen anything at all, for the processes there's top, ps, ksysguard, but they give very little info

thanks
