Hi All,

I'm hoping I'm just missing something stupid here or someone can point me to another post.  I have created a monitor set for CPU % time for each proc.  There are 16 proc's assigned in the monitor set.  I've noticed that in some cases when I apply this monitor set it applies just the amount of proc's that actually reside on the server. (Perfect).  In other instances, all proc's are assigned to the server and only the ones that are actually there report back.  On all servers I've tested this on, full audits were done before trying to assign the monitor set.  What I can't figure out is why the selective assigning occurs sometimes and not others.  I know that at the end of the day it is not a big deal from an alerting standpoint, but I'd love to know how to get consistent results.  Anybody have any ideas?
