    The current CDM v6.20 only allows the top processes to be sent on the alarm for physical memory thresholds this isn't much use in the real world in a lot of instances like MS SQL which will by default use all the available physical memory thus alarm constantly, hence therefore why "memory usage" (probe GUI actually pagefile in CFX file) is used.

     

    The support case was closed for this "as its working as design" which maybe so but not in the real world.

     

    Parameter

    memory_usage_alarm_includes_processes = 5

     

          <pagefile error> overwrite
             active = yes
             threshold = 90
             description = Pagefile usage above error threshold
             message = PagefileError <- "Processes" here
          </pagefile error>
          <pagefile warning> overwrite
             active = no
             threshold = 50
             description = Pagefile usage above warning threshold
             message = PagefileWarning <- "Processes" here
          </pagefile warning>
          <physical error> overwrite
             active = no
             threshold = 95
             description = Physical memory usage above error threshold
             message = PhysicalErrorProcesses
          </physical error>
          <physical warning> overwrite
             active = no
             threshold = 85
             description = Physical memory usage above warning threshold
             message = PhysicalWarningProcesses
          </physical warning>
