Check manual page of winperf.cpuusage

CPU usage on Windows systems (deprecated)

Distribution: official part of Check_MK
License: GPL
Supported Agents: Windows

This check monitors the CPU usage on a Windows system using the windows performance counters (agent section winperf). In its current implementation this check is always OK.

Setting a level for warning or a critical state is possible, but might not be very useful, since the computed value is an average over just one check cycle. A combination with a larger value of max_check_attempts or notification_delay might be useful here.

Note: this check is deprecated and not used by modern Check_MK agents. It is replaced by winperf_processor.util.


A check of this type is automatically created for all Windows hosts.
