Adding the process group

What is the process group?

A process group is a group of multiple processes that perform the same operation in a single instance. Use the process groups to monitor or receive notifications for each group rather than individual processes.

You can see at a glance the resource usages for each divided process in Process Group. There is no need to calculate the resource usages for individual processes.

You can set to receive notifications when the usage sum of resources for the process group exceeds a specific threshold. For more information about the notification settings, see the following.

Adding the process group


The project Edit or Alert settings role is required. For more information about the roles, see the following.
