The BMC PATROL Configuration Manager includes the Process KM Configuration Plug-in that allows you to configure the Process KM to monitor specific processes. The plug-in provides three tabs. Each tab enables you to specify certain monitoring criteria.
- The Process tab designates a process or processes to be monitored by the PATROL Knowledge Module for UNIX.
- The Start/Restart Options tab controls the number of instances of a process that is being monitored. You can configure the knowledge module to automatically stop an instance of a monitored process if it exceeds the maximum process count or automatically start a process if the number of process instances falls below the minimum count.
- The Alert and Monitor Options tab specifies what type of alert is generated by the knowledge module and the time frame in which the alert is generated when the monitored process falls below the minimum count or rises above the maximum.
