An update to the "Simple Process Check" Plugin

Posted in Plugins | Comments Comments

The Simple Process Check plugin takes a comma-delimited list of process names, and alerts you if any of the named processes stop running. It’s an easy way to keep tabs on the essential processes on your server.

What’s New: Track Multiple Processes with Different Arguments

You can also check that a process exists with a certain substring included in its arguments. For example, to check for two instances of node (one with “emailer” in its args, and one with “eventLogger” in its args), set this in process_names: node/emailer,node/eventLogger.

You can mix and match pure process_names and process_name/args.

Here’s the link to the Simple Process Check plugin again.
