How to monitor 2 otr more processes with same name wmi



I have a lot of Windows servers which have more then 1 process with the same name. Just say that the WORD proces has been started 10 times. When i choose with WMI to monitor that process, it only show 1 process.

Is there a possibility to get the information from al the processes ?

in PRTG 8 the WMI Process Sensor will monitor the CPU Usage off all instances process, and the total memory usage above all instances.

best regards.

Thnx, that works.

I have made some threshold triggers. Instances# condition equals 1 ( or 2, 3, 4 etc ) then is sends an email. But when all instances are killed then it gives an alarm.

Is it possible to always send an alarm ?

If you want an alarm when no instances of the process is running, you could set an according "Lower Error Limit" of 1 and then use a State Trigger.
