Process Memory Usage - no time series data found


Hi all,

We received a request, to create a custom alert for a process, when the memory consumption of the process consumes X GB of memory.

I found the closest metric is Technologies > Generic > Memory > Usage .

When I select this, I get the following warning:

So, there are no metric dimensions, and no time series data is available.

Is there any way to enable this, or am I looking at a wrong metric?

Thanks in advance and best regards,

You are looking at the wrong metric, what technology is the process?

You can find the memory metrics in the category for the specific technology e.g.:

  • Technologies -> Java virtual machine -> Memory
  • Technologies -> Go -> Memory
  • Technologies -> Node.js -> Heap
  • ....

Thanks for the answers!

This is a .NET application, if I check any of the four memory consumption metrics (HOP, Gen 0 Gen 1, Gen 2) I get the same result, no time series data is available.

Is there any way to enable those?

They are enabled by default. Do you see data in the process dashboard for that specific process?

Have you restarted the process after installing the OneAgent?

There is a generic process memory metric at Technologies > Generic > Memory > Process memory usage


Thanks for your answer. The base issue is that this option returns a no time series data available result.
