What is a Task / Process Alert Condition?


In every Conditional Alert you can create Task Alert Conditions to monitor specific running tasks/processes on the target computer. The conditions will be triggered if the particular task/process cannot be located in the Windows Running Processes list (as seen in the Windows Task Manager Processes tab) and if it remains that way for an extended period of time (the Trigger Threshold).


To add a Task Alert Condition, in the Create / Edit Conditional Alert window click the +Task Condition button on the toolbar. To edit an existing condition you can click the PencilStub16  in the Conditions List.


This will bring up the Running Task / Process Alert Condition Window window (see below).

Next, just fill out the Trigger Threshold (See screenshot to the left) to indicate how long the task is NOT running before the alert condition is triggered. Enable the condition by checking the Enable this Alert Condition box and click the OK button when you are satisfied with your selections.
