CPU Usage% error state by average CPU usage



Is it possible to create a CPU usage sensor where the sensor only will go into the alarm state if CPU usage % has been over a certain value for x amount of minutes?

Example: I want the sensor to go into an alarm state if (average) CPU usage has been over 80% the last 5 minutes.

This is not possible. The PRTG philosophy is to show the current sensor status.
