Issue/Introduction

Irrelavant alerts are generated for processes probe.  The probe is not configured to monitor processes such as mv mentioned in the message.

Environment

Release : 20.3

Component : UIM - PROCESSES

Cause

There is a wildcard in the proc_cmd_line in configuration

Resolution

The configuration had proc_cmd_line configured as follows:

proc_cmd_line = */opt/IBM/pli/WebSphere/AppServer855/profiles/dashProfile/*

The wild card '*' at the end caused monitoring of some processes that were not intended to be monitored.

Removing the wildcard '*' at the end and providing the exact command line ensured that only relevant alerts are generated.
