The help for r1.3.1 was not super clear (to me). This is the text for the
upcoming r1.4. Do you think this is better? If not, what do you recommend?
RANGEs are specified 'min:max' or 'min:' or ':max' (or 'max'). If
specified 'max:min', a warning status will be generated if the
count is inside the specified range
This plugin checks the number of currently running processes and
generates WARNING or CRITICAL states if the process count is outside
the specified threshold ranges. The process count can be filtered by
process owner, parent process PID, current state (e.g., 'Z'), or may
be the total number of running processes
check_procs -w 2:2 -c 2:1024 -C portsentry
Warning if not two processes with command name portsentry. Critical
if < 2 or > 1024 processes
check_procs -w 10 -a '/usr/local/bin/perl' -u root
Warning alert if > 10 processes with command arguments containing
'/usr/local/bin/perl' and owned by root
check_procs -w 50000 -c 100000 --metric=VSZ
Alert if vsz of any processes over 50K or 100K
