Introduction:

Sometimes there are zombie processes on a Unix or Linux system that need to be monitored, how can this be achieved with System Edge agent?

Question:

What is the required configuration syntax for System Edge Agent to monitor a zombie process on Unix or Linux?

Environment:
Any Unix or Linux system.
Answer:

 

System Edge just monitors the process if it exists or not and not the state. 

An alternative is the log monitor or some other method, e.g. if it's an application where users cannot log in or where a log states application not responding.
