This check does exactly the same as ps, but in addition outputs performance data. Please refer to the manpage of ps for more details.

Note: If you want to use ps.perf on Windows systems then you need to install the plugin psperf.bat into the plugins directory of you Windows agent. Do not use wmicchecks.bat. This is obsolete.

Name of the process

Discovery

One service is created for each configured process on the monitored system. Since Checkmk cannot know which processes are of relevance to you, some configuration is needed. The configuration is done via the ruleset {inventory_processes_perf}.
