Is there any tool like strace to track kernel calls.


When I do strace touch a, it gives list of system calls. But It does not give info about subsequent info about kernel calls which happen after "touch a".

Is there any way to find list of kernel calls which lists kernel calls also.

The -p flag allows you to specify a pid to trace all kernel calls for. The only problem is that by the time you would even be able to think about typing ps to find the touch pid it will have completed. Some binaries have switches that will verbosely show the kernel signals but touch does not have one of those flags.
