Any way to include updated Processes into a monitor?

lchance

I have a group of servers where I'm monitoring every process on the server.

Is there any way to automate APM to pick up any future processes which become active?

 

Thanks,

Larry

    No, but we'll take that as a feature request.

    There is no support for it out of the box, but here is what I have seen the other customer using as workaround:

    - They are using NPM UnDP to collect the OID customCurrentProcessList.  The UnDP automatically puts the complete current process list into the correct NPM DB table.

     

    - They have an application template that includes a single component monitor (SNMP process monitor) that monitors explorer.exe

     

     - They wrote a Stored Procedure in SQL Server that runs every 30 seconds that compares the NPM table (that holds the latest customCurrentProcessList) with the APM component monitor table for the application.  If there are any new processes in the NPM table, the stored procedure creates a new component monitor for that process. 

     

    - They use Orion Unmanage Utility to Unmanage/Remanage the application (after it was modified by stored proc) so APM would pick up the changes and start polling the newly added process.

    Can you explain what you're trying to accomplish by monitoring all processes on a server? I'm sure you have a good reason. I just want to better understand your use case. If implemented I'm sure you wouldn't want to be alerted if someone opened notepad.exe on the server and APM automatically started monitoring it, then they closed notepad.exe.
