Process monitor

Overview

A process monitor watches the status produced by the process.up service check reported by the check in the Agent. At the Agent level you can configure thresholds based on the number of matching processes.

Read more about configuration on the Process Check page.

For each process, a single service check status is produced. Through this creation interface, you can choose which of those checks to monitor and at what point they should notify.
