strace is a debugging utility for Linux and some other Unix-like systems to monitor the system calls used by a program and all the signals it receives, similar to "truss" utility in other Unix systems. This is made possible by a kernel feature known as ptrace.

The Linux strace command is a utility that can be used to trace down the interaction between a program and Linux kernel. The interaction here means the Linux system calls that the program uses and the Linux signals that the program receives.
