Monitoring a Linux Process's CPU/Memory Usage




I am trying to find a way of monitoring a Linux server java process in terms of its memory and cpu usage.

Is there a way of doing this in prtg, and could someone give me some guidance please... :-)

Thanks AJ.

thank you very much for your KB-Post. As there is no native sensor for this, we would recommend using a SSH Script Advanced sensor, based on the 'top'-response for the process in question.

best regards.
