Re: configuring ps_mon.cfg for nfsd

The man page of the Linux ps command says:
----
Sometimes the process args will be unavailable; when this happens, ps will instead print the executable name in brackets.
----

So the name of the process is really nfsd (without any brackets).

Re: configuring ps_mon.cfg for nfsd

The nfsd processes have brackets around them because they're not user-land processes, but kernel processes. I'm not sure what you're monitoring regarding them, but if they have a problem, you have bigger issues given that they're in kernel-space.
