11 proc.get parameters

Overview

The item proc.get[<name>,<user>,<cmdline>,<mode>] is supported on Linux, Windows, FreeBSD, OpenBSD, and NetBSD.

List of process parameters returned by the item varies depending on the operating system and 'mode' argument value.

Linux

The following process parameters are returned on Linux for each mode:

mode=process mode=thread mode=summary
