Custom process group detection rules (deprecated)
Starting with Dynatrace version 1.218+, you can use Declarative process grouping. All your detection rules are automatically migrated to the new format. Declarative grouping has priority over custom process grouping.
Settings for process groups created via custom process grouping rules are not automatically migrated. You must manually recreate the custom process grouping rules.
Within large, dynamic environments, the number of processes running on your hosts can become overwhelming. For this reason, Dynatrace only monitors important process group types.
However, Dynatrace also provides the option of monitoring specific processes that fall into neither of these two categories. This means that you can, if required, monitor processes of a technology type unknown to Dynatrace that don't consume significant resources.
To create such a process group
In the Dynatrace menu, go to Settings.
Select Processes and containers > Custom process monitoring rules.
In the Custom process group detection rules section, select Add to add a new detection rule.
Enter the information that OneAgent needs to identify the new process group (Process group type, Executable name, and Executable path). optional You can enter any Command line parameters to further filter the monitored process groups.
After saving your changes, the newly defined custom process group will be automatically detected and monitored across all hosts—even on hosts that are launched following the definition of the custom process group.
Dynatrace automatically assigns names to detected process groups of unrecognized process technologies that consume significant resources. You can also define a detection rule to adapt the names of such process groups based on your needs.
