Hello everybody,

 

We need to see the processes' pid in a MDA graph and, as far as I know, the only way to do it is by request attributes.
The problem is that I have not find out the way to do it. do you know if it's possible to get the pid of a process as request attribute?

 

Thank you for your help

 

Best regards

Rob D.

I don't think you can capture this information using Request attributes. However, if you have instance identifiers set properly for you process groups, you can use them in the MDA views. Instance names are the correct method to identify your instances. This is especially required if you have multiple instances on a single host. 

Set them either by defining process group detection rules or by setting the DT_NODE_ID environment variable for the process.
