Monitor the total number of processes running on your system, including user and system processes.
Monitor the total number of processes running on your system. Failure to properly monitor total processes can lead to performance issues or server crashes.
The tools available for monitoring processes differ based on your operating system. As a guideline, you may want to obtain a baseline number of processes during normal operation of your system, and send alerts when the number of processes is two or more standard deviations above the baseline.
