Need sensor to view total instances open on server



I'm looking for a sensor that can track the amount of instances that are open for a particular EXE. This EXE is located on a server with multiple remote sessions being open on it and it would nice to see if there's a way to track how many the users have open.

custom-sensor exe-xml prtg

Hey MOMeara,

this can be done with our Windows Process sensor which shows the following parameters about the process:

  • Absolute working set in bytes
  • Private bytes
  • Number of threads
  • Number of handles
  • Number of instances
  • Average CPU usage (if there are multiple instances running)
  • Total CPU usage

Best regards,
