Process agent

The Process agent starts, stops, and monitors a process that you specify. You can use the agent to make a process highly available.

The agent does an exact match of configured PathName and Arguments with the processes in the process table. To clarify, the processes that ps command lists should have exact match of PathName and Arguments for all the configured processes in the VCS configuration file /etc/VRTSvcs/conf/config/

Note that the AMF kernel driver does not monitor kernel processes. Even if you have enabled intelligent monitoring for Process agent, you must use the traditional poll-based monitoring to monitor kernel processes.
