The ps section of the windows agent now provides additional information regarding processes.
# (user, virtual_size, resident_size, %cpu, processID, pagefile_usage, usermodetime, kernelmodetime, openHandles, threadCount) processName
#(\\KLAPPRECHNER\ab,29284,2948,0,3124,904,400576,901296,35,1) NOTEPAD.EXE

Previously you had to use the windows agent plugin psperf.bat to achieve the same amount of data.
Since this data is now reported by the agent itself, the psperf.bat plugin becomes obsolete.
In fact any data from psperf.bat will now be ignored in the ps check whenever the windows agent reports extended process information.

Additional fixes and features

  • The agent now also reports its build date, apart from its version
  • Bugfix: The virtual and resident memory shown in the check output is now correct. There were problems whenever there were multiple processes with the same name
