The Erlang Runtime is a Miniature Operating System

This is a great way of seeing what is going on in Erlang/Elixir.

Fire up iex:

Type the following

:erlang.registered()

This lists the registered global names.

:observer.start

This launches the process observer which allows you to browse the current state of the system (can be attached to any erlang system that you can access).
