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

The HOST-RESOURCES-MIB is a standardized MIB provided by many SNMP agents. This check uses that MIB in order to monitor the current CPU utilization of the target host. Please note, that - unlike check based on the check_mk_agent, the percentage does not reflect the usage during the complete check interval but is just a snapshot of the current usage.


One service is created if at least one CPU entry is found.
