obtain process snapshot for a process in my environment

I'm currently exploring the idea of developing a OneAgent plugin to monitor processes in my environment. In looking at the guides/etc. I see that there are examples of process snapshots. Is it possible to pull a snapshot of a process in my environment? The guide in question is here: https://dynatrace.github.io/plugin-sdk/readme.html#plugin-simulator.

The big challenge right now is that I'm trying to figure out what to put into the plugin.json so it triggers properly. For example, the guides all point to specifying a KNOWN technology, but this process is unknown to Dynatrace and shows as Other. If I could see how this process looks to Dynatrace, it would go a long way in helping me figure out how I need to configure it...

Thanks!

Hi Josepth.

Thanks for using OneAgent plugins!

In your case HOST activation is worth trying, see: https://dynatrace.github.io/plugin-sdk/plugin_lifecycle/index.html - Keep plugin active continuously

Also take a look at the examples from extension SDK, there is a complete plugin always activated, which is similar to your case: examples\oneagent_me\demo_oneagent_plugin_lifecycle\

I hope this will help you, if not don't hesitate reaching us.


Best regards,

Peter
