State and Count of Processes

Distribution: official part of Check_MK
License: GPL
Supported Agents: Linux, Windows, AIX, Solaris, OpenVMS

This check looks into the list of then current running processes for those matching a certain name or regular expression and optionally being owned by a certain user. The number of matching processes is matched against warning and critical levels.

Item

A user definable service description for Nagios. That description must be unique within each host. Changing the description will make Nagios think that it is another service.

Discovery

The Check_MK check ps supports discovering running services on your monitored systems. Since Check_MK cannot know which processes are of relevance to you, some configuration is needed. The configuration is done via the ruleset inventory_processes_rules.

During inventory Check_MK tries to match all entries on each process found on the target host. If an entry matches, a new check will be created according to the entry (if it's not already existing).
