This requires volatility to be a library, not just an EXE file sitting somewhere. Run these commands at python shell:

Download Volatility source zip from https://github.com/volatilityfoundation/volatility
Inside the extracted folder run:
setup.py install

Then install these dependencies:
pip install bottle
pip install yara
pip install distorm3
pip install maxminddb


-f File containing the RAM dump to analyze
-p Volatility profile to use during analysis (--profile may not work even though it shows as an option)
-d Optional path for output file. Default is beside memory image
-l Restrict web server from serving content outside of the local machine
-r comma separated list of plugins to run at the start

!!! WARNING: Avoid writing sqlite to NFS shares. They can lock or get corrupt. If you must, try mounting share with 'nolock' option.


  • Works with any Volatility module that provides a SQLite render method (some don't)
  • Automatically detects plugins - If volatility sees the plugin, so will eVOLve
  • All results stored in a single SQLite db stored beside the RAM dump
  • Web interface is fully AJAX using jQuery & JSON to pass requests and responses
  • Uses Bottle module in Python to provide a standalone web server
  • Option to edit SQL query to provide enhanced data views with data from multiple tables
  • Run plugins and view data from any browser - even a tablet!
  • Allow multiple people to review results of single RAM dump
  • Multiprocessing for full CPU usage
  • Pre-Scan runs a list of plugins at the start

Coming Features

  • Save custom queries for future use
  • Import/Export queries to share with others
  • Threading for more responsive interface while modules are running
  • Export/save of table data to JSON, CSV, etc
  • Review mode which requires only the generated SQLite file for better portability

Please send your ideas for features!
