Check Running Process


Hi everyone,

is it possible to check if a process is running on a server? I want to check for example fail2ban with the icinga2-client but i dont know how, anyone an idea?

best regards,



Take a look at the docs please:


thank you, but I only can change the check “procs” but I want a new check too. So I want to have one procs check for all processes which are started on the server and one check for only one specific service. Anyone an idea?

best regards,

Create two separate services leveraging the options of the procs plugin.
