Discovery process parameters Process parameters identify processes such as those used by LDAP, Apache Server, and JBoss Server. Table 1. Process parameters Parameter Description parameter The parameters used to run the process. command The command used to run the process. output The complete output of the current line of the process probe. type Indicates the process type (e.g. unix or windows). PID The process ID generated by the operating system of a device to identify a running process. Generally, this parameter is not a practical classification criteria, because the value does not remain static, except in the case of processes running on an appliance that is never restarted. name Name of the process being discovered. In some cases, this parameter is not reliable, since several process might be given the same name. In Windows, for example several processes return scvhost.exe for this parameter.
