Question:

How can the command line for the processes probe on Solaris be increased past 80 characters?

Answer:

There is an option for solaris that can be set in the cfg file directly (raw configure or editor) called extended_cmdline in the setup section. It is a yes/no key. This will trigger an extra ps command which handles longer commandlines, and merges the data from the original ps command which truncated the commandline.

<setup>
extended_cmdline = yes
</setup>

This is also documented in the probe's readme file.
