Viewing Active Processes

 

OpManager provides you the information on the processes that are currently running on the managed device. For this, OpManager uses the protocol of the default credential of that device (SNMP / WMI / CLI).

 

To view the details, navigate to the Snapshot page of the device from the Inventory, and you can view all the processes that are currently running on the device from the Active Processes tab.

Note:
  • When multiple types of credential profiles are associated, OpManager follows this priority to fetch the active processes: WMI > CLI > SNMP
  • Example 1: If a device has both SNMP and WMI credentials associated to it, OpManager will first try to fetch the active processes via WMI. If that fails, then the processes will be fetched via SNMP.
  • Example 2: If a device has bot SNMP and CLI credentials associated, OpManager will first try to fetch the processes via CLI and then via SNMP.

 

Also, if you have enabled Custom Dials for your devices, you can view the top 10 processes of a device by clicking on the Process Diagnostics icon on the top-right corner of the dial. From there, you can choose to end processes that are consuming a lot of resources by simply clicking on the Kill Process (bin) icon.
