Process Monitoring Extension


Process Monitoring Extension

Hi Team,


I want to Monitor my Chrome Process count and Memory utilized by individuals chrome process.


Below is the Process Monitoring extension configured. @Nina.Wolinsky @Aditya.Jagtiani @Bhuvnesh.Kumar @Claudia.Landivar 


metricPrefix: "Server|Component:Test1|Custom Metrics|Process Monitor|"
# metricPrefix: "Custom Metrics|Process Monitor|"

# displayName: required - Metrics to be reported under this name in Controller's Metric Browser
# regex/pid/pidFile - process is fetched using this field
- displayName: "machine agent"
regex: ".*java.exe -jar machineagent.jar"

- displayName: "Chrome Monitoring"
regex: ".* chrome.exe"


# Not necessary to modify

process: "ps -eo pid,%cpu=CPU%,%mem=Memory%,rsz=RSS,args"

process: "ps -eo pid,pcpu=CPU%, -o pmem=Memory%, -o rss=RSS -o args"

process: "ps -eo pid,pcpu=CPU%,pmem=Memory%,rss=RSS,args"

- CPU%:
multiplier: 1
- Memory%:
alias: "Memory%"
- RSS:
alias: "Resident Set Size"
- Running Instances:
alias: "Running Instances"

# number of concurrent tasks
numberOfThreads: 2

# This is to run this in scheduled mode. In this case, the extension will fetch the data every 300 seconds
# and caches the data. The cached data will be reported to controller every min. This way there is no metric drop.
# Can be used when the data rarely changes or to reduce the load while fetching metrics every minute.
# numberOfThreads: 1
# taskDelaySeconds: 300

Created a custom extension for Chrome Monitoring. Process Monitoring extension didn't work as per expectation.
