I see that in fact the limit comes from the output of ps axwo 'stat uid pid ppid vsz rss pcpu comm args ' and got around it by monitoring the args field

I have to monitor a few servers that have unusually long process names ranging between 30 and 46 characters. From what I see check_procs works with procs with up to 16 characters.I tried to edit the source code to allow for longer names but did not manage to do that correctly :D, can you guys help ?
