Field NameDescription
SourceThe source name to display in the legend for the CPU & Memory data.
Process Name RegexThe regular expression used to match the name of the process.

Reconcile optionDescription
All Source AverageDisplay a single source for each matching unique process name. It will show an average value of metrics along with count of processes for the source. This option is useful when focus is on the number of processes running or average utilization of particular processes.
All Individual Source

Display all unique sources (unlike average, even if multiple processes have the same process name, they are distinguished with index. For example, processname1 .. processnameN). This option is useful when individual process monitoring is crucial.

Longest Running

Display the single source that matches the process running for the longest period of time.

First Match

Display the first process that matches the regex parameter.


Display the parent processes that matching the regex parameters.
