Processes (Windows)

The Processes plugin allows you to monitor what processes are running on your server.

Control Panel Configuration

First select Windows and scroll to Processes.

There will be three options: Number of processes by name, Number of processes running and Process is running. For “Process is running” and “Number of processes by name,” you can enter in whatever process name you would like to check.

Metric

Unit

Number of processes by name

processes

Number of processes running                  

processes

Process is running

boolean                              

Important Note: The process name must be the friendly name, which is the process without the .exe extension.

The Process is running check will return a 1 if that process is running and 0 if it is down. Please do not forget this is a boolean check if you choose to change your Alert Thresholds for this resource.

You can monitor multiple Processes agent resources on one server if you would like, so you can keep track of all of your essential processes in this manner.
