The Volatools suite is a set of tools by [[Komoku]] for conducting [[Windows Memory Analysis|memory analysis]]. The current version, '''Volatools Basic''', can process images from [[Windows XP]] Service Pack 2 systems. A forthcoming version '''Volatools Professional''' should be able to process images from more platforms. Although the Volatools are written in [[Python]] and are therefore cross-platform, they require the [[Pykvm]] library that is only available for [[Windows]].
