Werk #1403: kernel.util: allow levels for the total CPU utilization

Component Checks & Agents
Title kernel.util: allow levels for the total CPU utilization
Date Sep 18, 2014
Checkmk Editon Checkmk Raw (CRE)
Checkmk Version 1.2.5i6
Level Prominent Change
Class New Feature
Compatibility Incompatible - Manual interaction might be required

The CPU utilization check for Linux only allowed to set levels for the disk wait percentage. The parameters have been converted to a dictionary and now allow to set levels on the total CPU utilization as well.

Please note: if you have defined the variable {kernel_util_default_levels} in your {main.mk}, then you need to convert this to a dictionary - otherwise it will be ignored. Instead of

main.mk
kernel_util_default_levels = (10, 20)

... please now write...:

main.mk
kernel_util_default_levels = { "iowait" : (10, 20) }

Users of WATO are not affected by this and do not need to change anything.
