Monitors processes for CPU and memory usage.
This event monitor watches the processes running on remote machines. It can be set to check overall CPU and memory usage or to focus on specific processes to ensure they are running and aren't using too much CPU time or memory.
This event monitor provides the following options:
Use this option to get alerts if FrameFlow could not contact the selected device.
This option lets you specify the number of processes that will trigger each level of alert.
This option calculates the total CPU usage of all processes and alerts based on thresholds that you choose.
Use this option to get alerts about processes that are using the most CPU time. Or you can select to watch any individual process that you want to monitor.
This option measures the total amount of memory used by all processes and alerts you based on the thresholds that you choose.
Use this option to get alerts about the processes that are using the most memory. Or you can select to watch any individual process and alert about its memory usage.
Use this option to be notified if selected processes are running.
Enter the names of the processes that the event monitor will look for. To get the exact name, use the option below to include a list of running processes in all notifications. To specify multiple processes, separate them with commas.
In some cases, it is normal to have a few instances of a specific process running but having too many of them can indicate a problem. Use this option to only get alerts if there are more than a certain number of instances of the same process running.
If you have critical processes that must be running all the time, use this option to get alerts if they are not found. To specify multiple processes, separate them with commas.
When this option is selected the event monitor will include a list of all detected processes in each alert and notification. It's a great way to see and select the exact process names to be used in other settings for the event monitor.
By default, the event monitor uses Windows performance counters to collect the data it needs. Performance counters are the most reliable option; however, if the event monitor reports that it is unable to find the required counters you can enable this option to tell it to use Windows Management Instrumentation (WMI) instead.
The default port number of SSH connections is 22. If your servers are using a non-standard port you can specify it here.
PDH: The account used for authentication must be a member of the Performance Monitor Users group or have admin rights.`
WMI: The account used for authentication must be a member of the Performance Monitor Users group and the Distributed COM Users group, or have admin rights.

This event monitor generates the following data points:
|Process Count||The total number of processes running.|
|CPU Usage||The total CPU used, by percent.|
|Memory Usage||The percentage of total memory used.|
