Remote Code Execution in Alpine Linux
tl;dr I found several bugs in apk, the default package manager for Alpine Linux. Alpine is a really lightweight distro that is very commonly used with Docker...

Debugging Stuck Ruby Processes—What to do Before You Kill -9
You can also use other tracing tools to examine the behavior of the looping process. On Linux, strace -p <pid> allows you to view the system calls being made by the process. If you’re on an OS that has dtrace available, you can use dtruss -p <PID> instead to get a similar output.

On Linux:
# strace -p <pid>

On Mac:
# dtruss -p <pid>

gdb -p <pid>
(gdb) t a a bt
(gdb) call (void)rb_backtrace()

Intercepting and Emulating Linux System Calls with Ptrace « null program
The ptrace(2) (“process trace”) system call is usually associated with debugging. It’s the primary mechanism through which native debuggers monitor debuggees on unix-like systems. It’s also the usual approach for implementing strace — system call trace. With Ptrace, tracers can pause tracees, inspect and set registers and memory, monitor system calls, or even intercept system calls.
