We use Zabbix for monitoring. In CloudLinux zabbix-agent can\'t see the number of processes for httpd, sshd and mysql. The solution according to another forum is to set the Zabbix group in /etc/sysctl.conf with fs.proc_super_gid.

But fs.proc_super_gid is already set: fs.proc_super_gid=500
Group 500 is: psaadm:x:500:psaadm,sw-cp-server - It\'s the group of the Plesk system users and was set automatically.

How can I add a second group 493?

Is there a special syntax? Adding the line twice did not work, neither did fs.proc_super_gid=500,493.
Or is it ok to create a separate group and add the users of these two groups? Would that have any security implications?

Kind regards

You cannot add a second group, but you can add all the users from group2 to group1.
Or create group 3 with all the users from group 1 & group 2.

Thanks, I created a separate group for the users. That worked.
