I use check_procs to monitor java process RSS memory:

/usr/lib/nagios/plugins/check_procs -w 1573000 -c 1992000 -C java --metric RSS

The warning email looks like below. Is there a way to have the actual RSS value returned that caused the warning?

***** Nagios *****

Notification Type: PROBLEM

Service: JBoss RSS memory
Host: ip-10-0-1-243

Date/Time: Wed Jul 2 09:13:25 UTC 2014

Additional Info:

RSS WARNING: 1 warn out of 1 process with command name java

Regards, Mike
