You can turn on performance monitoring for applications in ESM if you want to poll CPU or memory utilization on processes.
Performance monitoring for applications is disabled by default.
To enable performance monitoring:
Go to the Polling and Thresholds Console and select Thresholds tab > ESM Process Performance Monitoring > Process Performance Thresholds > Settings > Service Process Performance Setting.
Set the EnablePerformanceAnalysis parameter to True and then reconfigure.
The EnablePerformanceAnalysis parameter indicates whether performance polling is enabled or disabled for the individual applications on hosts. Performance polling for applications is disabled if this parameter is set to FALSE.
