It's in the --help and several times in the mailing list archive. In 
fact, this question has been repeated so many times, I suspect that many 
readers despaired of being anble to muster a civil tone in their 
replies, thus did not reply.

use a range - you specify the accpatable range, so -w 1:10 means warn if 
the are not between 1 and 10 processes (inclusive) running)

Also read the --help screen. If the help needs to be inproved, send us
