This plugin gathers info about the total number of processes and groups them by status (zombie, sleeping, running, etc.)

On linux this plugin requires access to procfs (/proc), on other OSes it requires access to execute ps.

Supported Platforms: Linux, FreeBSD, Darwin


# Get the number of processes and group them by status
  # no configuration

Another possible configuration is to define an alternative path for resolving the /proc location. Using the environment variable HOST_PROC the plugin will retrieve process information from the specified location.

docker run -v /proc:/rootfs/proc:ro -e HOST_PROC=/rootfs/proc
