|Title||Windows: Use WMI for process monitoring by default|
|Checkmk Edition||Checkmk Raw Edition (CRE)|
|Compatibility||Compatible - no manual interaction needed|
The option use_wmi has been available as an 'experimental' feature for the section ps of the Windows agent since release 1.2.7i3. The default setting has still been to use the 'native' WinAPI for obtaining process information. As the native way seems to fail to obtain information about all desired processes at times and the WMI option seems to be working without significant problems, the default value of the option is now changed to 'yes'.
