CPU load

Distribution: official part of Check_MK
License: GPL
Supported Agents: Linux, AIX, FREEBSD, MACOSX, NETBSD, OPENBSD, Solaris

This check measures and checks the averaged CPU load. The values for 1, 5 and 15 minute average are sent, although the PNP template shipped with check_mk only displays the 1 and 15 min average load.

Note: The CPU load is the average number of processes that are currently in the state "running". Do not mix this up with the CPU "utiliziation" (which measures the current usage of the CPU in percent).
