Why can't i view processes?

I don't know why i can't view any process. Not a single one. And it seems like I couldn't do anything on the Process interface. Here's a screenshot...thanks

    Processes are polled via SNMP. You should start there... Do you have any Devices in a Device Class like /Server/Linux?

    I think it may have changed in 3.x ... It's only going to show processes you've defined to match via the regexs... Can you click on the + and say add process, and say add mysqld .... or a process you've got on a system you're monitoring?

    Not really. To minimize false positives and load, you pretty much are expected to create a regex to match what processes you want to monitor. Now, once there is a regex to match, Zenoss will detect that process on any server running it during a modeling pass and monitor it (you can also lock individual servers to NOT monitor that process, and probably do the same with device classes, though I haven't tried)...
