As per title. I don’t see how to do this. Thanks.
Unfortunately this is not currently possible.
If the server agent is going to be upgraded then this is a really useful feature.
Hi, @jeff.kolesnikowicz: Can you provide more information about what you mean by “monitor”? If your server runs Unix and you simply want to monitor that a particular process is running, Seth Schwartzman’s Unix plugin may meet your needs: http://newrelic.com/plugins/seth-and-the-hebrews/263.
If you’re using Windows, or you need details about the resources consumed by particular process, you may need to create your own plugin; the process is documented here: https://docs.newrelic.com/docs/plugins/developing-plugins.
I mean, I want to monitor a process to see if it behaves improperly. I have a process that occasionally hangs and needs to be restarted. Before it hangs, the CPU usage spikes. I want to monitor that to see if it happens.
OK. New Relic’s server monitor can detect a CPU spike at the OS-level, and you can see a CPU spike for a particular process on the Processes dashboard:
But it doesn’t look like server monitor exposes the CPU usage of individual processes as a metric value, so there’s no way to trigger an alert without using a plugin.
