ProTop has the ability to run custom monitoring scripts that can check anything that the user wants them to check. Typically this is used with the commercial version of ProTop to monitor non-OpenEdge components such as Tomcat or to run other application-specific monitoring scripts.

You can look at our two example scripts "lincoln.sh" and "99rb.sh" for instructions on how to use the Application Specific Activity monitor, or refer to the configuration guide that comes with the commercial version of ProTop.
