Monitor Type: processlist (Source)

Accepts Endpoints: No

Multiple Instances Allowed: No

Overview 🔗

This monitor reports the currently running processes for a host, analogous to how the top or ps command on Unix/Linux systems works. The output format is a special base64-encoded event that gets processed by our backend and displayed under the Infrastructure view for a specific host. Historical process information is not retained on the backend, only the most recent version.

Configuration 🔗

To activate this monitor in the Smart Agent, add the following to your agent config:

monitors:  # All monitor config goes under this key
 - type: processlist
   ...  # Additional config

For a list of monitor options that are common to all monitors, see Common Configuration.
