Monitoring Multiple Services With The Same Name


#1

Hi, I’m new here and hope that I am posting this in the correct format :slight_smile:

I’ve started using Nagios recently and have it monitoring about 24 servers currently (still have to add our Linux servers). My question is: How do I monitor a program running under Windows Server 2003 when several programs use the same executable name? For example: I want to monitor JBoss on a particular machine. This runs as “java.exe”. But on some systems, there is more than one “java.exe” running along with JBoss. Is there a way to have JBoss in particular monitored and not the other “java.exe” programs?

Thanks in advance for your time!
