Installing Procdump for Linux
Since I support Azure App Services and there is a influx of customers who want to use the Azure App on Linux stack, I felt it prudent to get my feet wet with Ubuntu. Learning some #Bash too while I’m at it. #Linux
The instructions on how to do this already exist here, so I will mostly show pictures and share any experience I have while doing this which took me off course or if I found something extra cool.
Here are the steps I followed:
- Add the Microsoft Product feed
- Register the Microsoft Product feed
- Install Procdump
Add the Microsoft Product feed
I executed these commands, as seen in Figure 1. Just in case you do not have CURL installed, I wrote how I did that here.
curl https://packages.microsoft.com/keys/microsoft.asc | gpg --dearmor > microsoft.gpg sudo mv microsoft.gpg /etc/apt/trusted.gpg.d/microsoft.gpg

Register the Microsoft Product feed
Execute the following bash command, as seen in Figure 2.
sudo sh -c 'echo "deb [arch=amd64] https://packages.microsoft.com/repos/microsoft-ubuntu-xenial-prod xenial main" > etc/apt/sources.list.d/microsoft.list'

I had to create the microsoft.list file by using this command, Figure 3. (Or there was a typo on the GitHub where there was no / before /etc…)
cd /etc/apt/sources.list.d; sudo -i sudo touch /etc/apt/sources.list.d/microsoft.list
I ran these commands to install Procdump on Linux, Figure 3 and Figure 4.
sudo apt-get update sudo apt-get install procdump

Then to execute Procdump to make sure it was installed and functional, I executed this command, Figure 5.
