Provided Measures

  • ProcessCount: Returns count of running processes matching the configured identifier.





The identifier of the process to monitor. (the filename, e.g. java.exe)

Since the plugin is using the tasklist command, this means that the logon account configured for the dynaTrace collector needs to have appropriate access to the host(s) you want to monitor (typically Administrator access to the server). A good way to test this is to log into the collector with the account it is running as, open a command prompt and execute a tasklist command to the remote server you want to monitor.


Import the Plugin into the dynaTrace Server. For details how to do this please refer to the dynaTrace documentation.

  1. Hi,

    I am trying to monitor a windows process called java.exe (PID 1244) on a remote server. I tried tasklist command successfully from the collector to the target server via cmd.

    After setting up the monitor to run every minute, the monitor keeps running without returning success or fail. The Result is no detail data available. and status running. and even after last 10 minutes the result is the same.

    Does it work for 6.1? or will require some update to the plugin?

    1. Hi Mr. Lalan,

      Did you ever get this fixed?  I am having the same issue. It seems to work sometimes and not others.
