Please check the below link for the process and infrastructure health monitoring.
A prerequisite for this feature is a host agent running on the host that executes the processes to be monitored. Agents for other technologies (e.g. Java and .NET) cannot be used for process availability monitoring.
Running / Unavailable processes are listed in the infrastructure overview. Once a process is not available, an incident is created.
Thanks Babar, i have tried to use host agent and see it on the process dashlet. However still cannot see any status.I double checked the windows task manager, the cmd.exe is running. Under the pattern colomn, i entered cmd.exe, i think it should be correct?
Seems to be okay but just verify the following:
Hey Babar, I followed your recommendations on configuring the process availability capabilities using 6.5 Host Agents, but the incident rules, "Process Availability Violation" are not sending emails. Outside of configuring the email recipients in the Infrastructure tab for Server Settings, is there a way to ensure that emails are sent?
I receive the email alerts from the configurations in the Infrastructure settings under "Alerts". all 4 check boxes are checked to receive email alerts from CPU, Mem, Network, Availability, and the available processes and their PIDs are seen in the Monitoring dashboard. I know that the host agent is able to recognize when these processes are up or down, and an incident is created when the expected process is not running, but I'm not receiving an email from neither the System Profile Incident Rule "Process Availability Violation", nor the Infrastructure Incident Rule "Process Availability Violation". The email recipients are configured for both. Do you know how to get Process Availability Violation incidents to send emails?
You can check the highlighted option and also this is incidents belongs to the infrastructure.
The below builtin incident is for the application process.
Please correct me, if I understood wrongly.
it is currently not possible to send an email / execute an action based on the "Process Availability Violation" incident via the Alert configuration, but this feature will be available in the next public update (6.5.14), which should be released around the end of this month.
Great links. here is the link that gets you directly to the doc for that feature: https://community.dynatrace.com/community/display/DOCDT65/Infrastructure?_ga=1.108597250.1433912981.1461676512#Infrastructure-HostgroupDialogBox-AvailabilityTab.1
I also covered it in my Whats New in Dynatrace 6.5 video that you can find on APM University (http://apmu.dynatrace.com).
The idea with that feature is that a Dynatrace Host Monitoring Agent can monitor if a certain set of processes is running on your hosts. For instance. If you have a background process running and you want to make sure that process is always there you can tell Dynatrace to monitor how many instances of a partiucular process are running. The Pattern is what allows you to configure the process itself, e.g: myprocess.exe or myprocess.* - the display name is just something we show in our UI
We have a requirement to monitor processes running on Linux,
The following two processes were added for monitoring works.
chrony 944 1 0 May21 ? 00:00:05 /usr/sbin/chronyd
libstor+ 953 1 0 May21 ? 00:00:02 /usr/bin/lsmd -d
What i cannot get to work is the following
I have tried using these pasterns as well.
