Application & Process Performance Metrics

Process Detail

uberAgent collects rich metrics per process & per application. This includes the user and domain, CPU & RAM usage as well as network latency & throughput, to name just a few.

Notes:

  • Processes are auto-grouped into applications, i.e., the application name is determined automatically. Information on how automatic application identification works is available here.

Details

  • Source type: uberAgent:Process:ProcessDetail
  • Used in dashboards: Process Performance, Application Performance, Machine Performance, Application Usage, Process GPU, Single Machine Detail, Single Application Detail, Single User Detail, Analyze data over time
  • Enabled through configuration setting: ProcessDetailTop5 or ProcessDetailFull
  • Related configuration settings: [ProcessToApplicationMapping], [ApplicationMappingIgnoredProcesses], [ProcessDetailFull_Filter], [ProcessDetail_SendCommandline], [ProcessStartupSettings]

List of Fields in the Raw Agent Data

Field Description Data type Unit Measurement type Platform Example
ProcName Process name. String Snapshot all chrome.exe
ProcCPUTimeMs Process CPU usage (absolute usage in milliseconds). Number ms Sum all 5000
ProcCPUPercent Process CPU usage (relative usage in percent). Number % Average all 12
ProcIOPSRead Process I/O read operations per second. Number Average Win 200
ProcIOPSWrite Process I/O write operations per second. Number Average Win 200
ProcIOReadCount Process I/O read operation count. Number Count Win 100
ProcIOWriteCount Process I/O write operation count. Number Count Win 100
ProcIOReadMB Process I/O read data volume. Number MB Sum all 150
ProcIOWriteMB Process I/O write data volume. Number MB Sum all 150
ProcIOLatencyReadMs2 Latency of process I/O read operations. Number ms Average Win 300
ProcIOLatencyWriteMs2 Latency of process I/O write operations. Number ms Average Win 300
ProcWorkingSetMB Process RAM usage (working set). Number MB Snapshot all 100
ProcNetKBPS Process network traffic data volume per second. macOS: includes payload + protocol overhead, Windows: payload only. Number KB/s Sum all 500
ProcUser Process user. String Snapshot all Domain\JohnDoe
ProcGpuComputePercent Process GPU compute usage (relative usage in percent). Number % Average Win 20
ProcGpuMemMB Process GPU memory usage. Number MB Average Win 150
AppId Associated application ID. Used by uberAgent to lookup application names and populate field AppName. String Snapshot all GglChrm
AppVersion Associated application version. String Snapshot all 67.0.3396.99
ProcID Process ID generated by the OS. Process IDs are reused and cannot be used to uniquely identify a process. Use ProcGUID for that purpose instead. Number Snapshot all 456
ProcCmdline The process’ command line. String Snapshot all C:\Program Files (x86)\Google\Chrome\Application\chrome.exe –url http://vastlimits.com
ProcGUID Unique identifier for a process instance that is generated by uberAgent. String Snapshot all 00000000-ebe5-469c-63ae-f5a1de28d401
ProcGpuEngineMostUsed The ID of the most used GPU engine (requires at least Windows 10 1709). Number Snapshot Win 1
ProcGpuEngineMostUsedDisplayName The display name of the most used GPU engine (requires at least Windows 10 1709). String Snapshot Win 3D
SessionID Session ID generated by the OS. Session IDs are reused and cannot be used to uniquely identify a session. Use SessionGUID for that purpose instead. Number Snapshot all 1

Notes:

  • The following fields are empty unless EnableExtendedInfo is set to true: ProcGUID.
  • The following field is empty unless EnableExtendedInfo and [ProcessDetail_SendCommandline] are configured: ProcCmdline.
