SCOM - Tracking multiple instances of of a running process
Posted on 2010-08-20
We have an applications server running custom code that utilizes Excel as part of a batch processing tasks. We are currently running into problems where the Excel portions of the task are not closing correctly and as processing goes on throughout the day, there will eventually be 10+ instances of Excel.exe running in Task Manager which then starts to bog down the server. While it is not a fix, I was wondering if it is possible to create an alert to notify IT if more than 5 instances of Excel are running through SCOM 2007?
