I would like to monitor several processes on each of my servers and the CPU usage and disk in/out of these processes. Is there an easy way to do this?

For Windows systems, you can try monitoring this with a custom WMI sensor. For a list of suitable fields, please see the process class documentation at Microsoft MSDN:

http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/aa394323%28v=VS.85%29.aspx


For example, you could set up a WMI Custom sensor in PRTG, using the following WQL request:

SELECT PercentProcessorTime FROM Win32_PerfRawData_PerfProc_Process WHERE Name='%PH1'

In the sensor's settings, enter the name of the process you want to monitor in the PH1 field. Create a sensor for every process you want to monitor.
