The *NIX app has a number of useful inputs, such as scripts calling top and ps periodically.

As you know, Linux does not have WMI. The closest thing that is easy to the deploy is the Splunk App for Linux and Unix. This supports a ps data input which you can use to monitor processes.

If this app doesn't give you exactly what you want out of the box, you can always roll your own scripted input.
