= A process is expected to run, but has stopped.
=A process is not expected to run, but is running.
=A process does not run as expected.=The number of process instances is not as expected.
=The CPU usage for a process is above threshold.
=The handle counts for a process are above threshold (Windows only).
=The memory usage for a process is above threshold.
=The thread usage for a process is above threshold
