Process run time



Is it possible to monitor how long a process has been running?

we have a system that if this certain process has been running longer than 30 min there is an issue and should be marked down.

Thank you for your help

I'm afraid this isn't possible with our WMI Process sensor. However, is it a Windows process you want to monitor, or do you want to monitor processes under a different system?

It is a windows process that is running.

Thank you

In that case I'm afraid the answer is unfortunately no. Sorry.
