How to monitor the nproc limit?

Hi Team,

I have a server running Oracle WCS and have set "nproc" limits in /etc/security/limits.d/20-nproc.conf.  So, my question is how do I monitor the nproc limits?

How do I make sure that the process should not fall under a certain limit If that happens how do we set a threshold and send email alerts?

In other words, how to handle the monitoring and be alerted when you close the fixed limit?

Thanks in advance!!

Re: How to monitor the nproc limit?

Hi Swapnil Pawar,

Thank you for asking. 

With Site24x7 Custom Plugins, users can write their own plugin and monitor the "nproc" limits. 

Please refer to the below link to write a custom plugin: 


After creating the custom plugin, the user will get options to set the threshold for the "nproc" metric and get alerted if the threshold is breached. 

For further queries, please reply to this thread.
