How can I define a Factory Sensor for multi-processor servers




I would like to configure a Factory Sensor that shows us an error or warnig if the average of the usage of one or more processors are more than 50 per cent for more than xx minutes. But not before. Is this possible? If yes, how must the Factory Sensor be configured?

Error states never have a latency.

You could create a factory that calculates the maximum of the processor usage of multiple processors and then add a notification with a latency if the value is above a limit for a certain time.
