Real Time Process Explorer alerts

Table of contents
No headers

Update: 3-9-2017

Three alerts are included with the Real Time Process Explorer:

  • High CPU Percent Utilization with Top 10 Processes
    This alert sends an email when the CPU utilization is greater than 80%.
  • High Physical Memory Utilization with Top 10 Processes
    An alert is sent when physical memory usage is at or above 90%.
  • High Virtual Memory Utilization with Top 10 Processes
    An alert is sent when virtual memory usage is at or above 90%.

These alerts can be found in the Alert wizard. For more information, see Use alerts to monitor your environment.

Alerts may lag if you are monitoring hardware via SNMP. It takes two updates to these statistics to provide an accurate calculation, meaning an alert can take up to four minutes to reach its recipient. To expedite this process, change the protocol to WMI, which updates every five seconds. Also, consider adjusting the trigger time to a value greater than two minutes.
