Currently, i added three process in the snmpd.conf in my Linux server: proc <httpd2-prefork> proc <java> proc <acronisagent>

For the httpd, there is number of processes are running: ps -e |grep httpd 1663 ? 00:00:07 httpd2-prefork 5445 ? 00:00:06 httpd2-prefork 5446 ? 00:00:06 httpd2-prefork 5447 ? 00:00:06 httpd2-prefork 5448 ? 00:00:06 httpd2-prefork 5449 ? 00:00:06 httpd2-prefork 5549 ? 00:00:06 httpd2-prefork 5557 ? 00:00:06 httpd2-prefork 5558 ? 00:00:06 httpd2-prefork 5606 ? 00:00:06 httpd2-prefork 5694 ? 00:00:06 httpd2-prefork

I have add a new SNMP Library sensor and then choose Basic Linux Library. Three of the processes could be found: Library-OIDs MIB Module Category Name Basic Linux Library (UCD-SNMP-MIB) Processes: 1 Processes Index Basic Linux Library (UCD-SNMP-MIB) Processes: 2 Processes Index Basic Linux Library (UCD-SNMP-MIB) Processes: 3 Processes Index Basic Linux Library (UCD-SNMP-MIB) Processes: 1 Processes Count Basic Linux Library (UCD-SNMP-MIB) Processes: 2 Processes Count Basic Linux Library (UCD-SNMP-MIB) Processes: 3 Processes Count Basic Linux Library (UCD-SNMP-MIB) Processes: 1 Processes Error Flag Basic Linux Library (UCD-SNMP-MIB) Processes: 2 Processes Error Flag Basic Linux Library (UCD-SNMP-MIB) Processes: 3 Processes Error Flag Basic Linux Library (UCD-SNMP-MIB) Memory Memory Total Swap

But finally, no process is counted in the "Processes Count": http://i.imgur.com/xrqIMsD.png

Please help.... thanks.

Better Format here...

Currently, i added three process in the snmpd.conf in my Linux server:

proc <httpd2-prefork>
proc <java>
proc <acronisagent>

For the httpd, there is number of processes are running:
ps -e |grep httpd
1663 ? 00:00:07 httpd2-prefork
5445 ? 00:00:06 httpd2-prefork
5446 ? 00:00:06 httpd2-prefork
5447 ? 00:00:06 httpd2-prefork
5448 ? 00:00:06 httpd2-prefork
5449 ? 00:00:06 httpd2-prefork
5549 ? 00:00:06 httpd2-prefork
5557 ? 00:00:06 httpd2-prefork
5558 ? 00:00:06 httpd2-prefork
5606 ? 00:00:06 httpd2-prefork
5694 ? 00:00:06 httpd2-prefork

I have add a new SNMP Library sensor and then choose Basic Linux Library. Three of the processes could be found:

Library-OIDs MIB Module	Category	Name Basic Linux Library (UCD-SNMP-MIB)	Processes: 1	Processes Index Basic Linux Library (UCD-SNMP-MIB)
Processes: 2	Processes Index Basic Linux Library (UCD-SNMP-MIB)
Processes: 3	Processes Index Basic Linux Library (UCD-SNMP-MIB)
Processes: 1	Processes Count Basic Linux Library (UCD-SNMP-MIB)
Processes: 2	Processes Count Basic Linux Library (UCD-SNMP-MIB)
Processes: 3	Processes Count Basic Linux Library (UCD-SNMP-MIB)
Processes: 1 Processes Error Flag Basic Linux Library (UCD-SNMP-MIB)
Processes: 2	Processes Error Flag Basic Linux Library (UCD-SNMP-MIB)
Processes: 3	Processes Error Flag Basic Linux Library (UCD-SNMP-MIB)
Memory	Memory Total Swap

But finally, no process is counted in the "Processes Count": http://i.imgur.com/xrqIMsD.png
