Linux Question

Tool which shows me which files are written in Linux?

I found in IOStat, that some part of my application is writing extensively, but I don't know which process it is and what files it is writing to. In Vista there is a tool fo that which shows the files that have been active in the last 30 Seconds. Is there something similar for Linux?


What you are looking for is lsof. It's a command line tool but there is also a GUI for it at sourceforge.
