Fibratus : Tool for Exploration & Tracing of the Windows Kernel

Fibratus is a tool which is able to capture the most of the Windows kernel activity – process/thread creation and termination, context switches, file system I/O, registry, network activity, DLL loading/unloading and much more.

The kernel events can be easily streamed to a number of output sinks like AMQP message brokers, Elasticsearch clusters or standard output stream.

You can use filaments (lightweight Python modules) to extend it with your own arsenal of tools and so leverage the power of the Python’s ecosystem.
