Check it out, before it bits you.
Ever need to debug your process in containers? Use strace, lsof, pstree, or anything you name it. But after login, you get a surprise: The tools are not installed!
So what will you do? Typically we have 3 different methods. Check it out, and discuss with me.
(Hint: You don’t have to install the tools at all)
