This check measures the 1-, 5- and 15-minute-averages of the CPU load. These metrics are checked against configurable levels.

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).
