Thanks. I will just monitor the shorter name or rename the process all
together for now while I figure out the reasoning behind the limitation..
I'm still unable to figure out why it is sporadically not detecting the
other processes. Any ideas where to look on this issue? Its only one
server where I'm seeing this and I have 3 other servers running the same
hardware and software (CentOS 5).
