Hi @Lucasvu , yes, Dynatrace can monitor them. You will just need to create rules for the Process Group detection, since those are common Linux processes that are not shown as dedicated processes on Dynatrace.

Once you define the proper rules to create the new Process Groups, you can then enable the Availability Monitoring for those.


Check if this works for you.

@dannemca  - you need to use custom process detection rules, not the the detection rules. Yes, the naming is confusing 😁
Anyway, @Lucasvu, if you have OneAgent 1.217 or newer, then you should use the Declarative Process Grouping. It's much more flexible than the old custom process detection rules.
