Hi,

Does anybody know if there is an equivalent tool in UNIX to WinObj in Windows NT? (http://www.sysinternals.com/ntw2k/freeware/winobj.shtml). In NT this tool allows you to monitor all system objects like mutexes and semaphores.

I'm having problems with named semaphores and I could do with a tool which lets me monitor their creation.

Many Thanks in advance,
Andy.
