Provided Measures

  • ProcessCount: Returns count of running processes matching the configured identifier.





The identifier of the process to monitor. (the filename, e.g. java.exe)

Since the plugin is using the tasklist command, this means that the logon account configured for the dynaTrace collector needs to have appropriate access to the host(s) you want to monitor (typically Administrator access to the server). A good way to test this is to log into the collector with the account it is running as, open a command prompt and execute a tasklist command to the remote server you want to monitor.


Import the Plugin into the dynaTrace Server. For details how to do this please refer to the dynaTrace documentation.
