Hi, I am new to PRTG and would like to monitor running processes on a Linux machine via SNMP. When a Linux machine is restarted the index of the service changes, so ideally the check would be done by looking for the name in the SNMP tree using HOST-RESOURCES-MIB. Any ideas please?

Thank you :)

linux process prtg service snmp

Hi there,

Could you elaborate what you mean by "Linux on Linux"? If you want to monitor processes, then please use the following guide which also offers a template:
