    Unanswered: Background process work on NT/2000

    Can anybody tell me how can I see Pmon/Smon background process working on Win NT/2000.
    Any help is highly appreciable.
    I need it very urgently and I don't have much time to explore the answer out from net or any doc.
    But still I am on search.

    Hi,

    These processes are part of the Instance, So one way to check that they are live is to make sure that instance is Up and running. If PMON dies, instance crashes.

    Another way is to look in to the Alert.log file located under background_dump_dest. You can also look for the trace files
    sidPMON.trc, sidSMON.trc located under the directory specified by backgroud_dumo_dest .
