#Process Agent

An agent that can be used to list running processes on remote machines.

##Installation

##Configuration

The Process client application can be configured to list only a subset of possible process field values. This can be configured in your client configuration file. Available fields are PID, USER, VSZ, COMMAND, TTY, RSS and STATE. Unconfigured the output will default to PID, USER, VSZ and COMMAND.

plugin.process.fields = PID, COMMAND, TTY, STATE

##Usage

% mco process list ruby

 * [ ============================================================> ] 2 / 2

   node1.your.com

     PID       USER     VSZ            COMMAND

##Data Plugin

The Process agent also supplies a data plugin which uses the sys-proctable Gem to check if there exists a process that matches a given pattern and can be used during discovery or any other place where the MCollective discovery language is used.

mco rpc rpcutil ping -S "process('ruby').exists=true"
