How can NetData monitor the performance of a single process in a system?

I want to monitor the performance of a process in Linux, What should I do?

Hey @fuzhiyu,

The first step would be to download and install Netdata Agent. What application do you wish to monitor?

BTW, welcome to our community :slight_smile:

Thank you very much. I see that apps_groups.conf has ceph configuration, but I want to see the performance of individual processes like OSD,mon, MGR instead of the sum

For example, I want to know the PERFORMANCE of OSD CPU, memory, network, etc., I do not know how to set

Hey @fuzhiyu :wave:

Indeed, apps.plugin monitors groups of processes, depends on the patterns in the configuration file.

Still it is possible to monitor a process - if we don’t use wildcards and use exact process name as pattern it would be a group of one process.

See apps.plugin readme configuration section and stock configuration file for examples.

Hope this helps!

Hey @fuzhiyu,

I have edited your original topic and placed it in the correct subcategory (Netdata Agent).

Moreover, please tell us if the links provided by @ilyam8 are useful or we can help you further.
