same as above. As one of Azure windows VM unexpectedly crashed at 100% of CPU on the other day, event log shows nothing goes down, just wondering if sensor can tell any cause of it. Thanks.

Hi there,

the Windows CPU Load Sensor just shows the overall load of each processor. It does not provide any kind of process table.
However, if you are suspecting a process or service to be the problem, you can monitor this specific processes with the Windows Process Sensor

HI Matthias, thanks for your reply regarding with this issue. I have tried the windows Process sensor for one of non windows programs we have running on Azure VM, but the drawback is when no users running that non windows program, the sensor will be showing down status. Do you know any other sensors can be used for non windows related program monitoring on CPU consumption ?

Hi there,

I am sorry, but with our standard sensors there is no other option. However you can still build your own custom PowerShell script to monitor specific processes. Take a look at the following Knowledge-Base article how to build your own custom PowerShell sensors: https://kb.paessler.com/en/topic/71356-guide-for-powershell-based-custom-sensors
