How can I trigger an alert if there is any process (on a windows system) is using 100% CPU for more than 30sec ? Apparently I am too stupid to find it or this is not something PRTG can do out of the box.

alert cpu-usage trigger

Dear Samfre

With PRTG, you can monitor a specific process, or the total CPU load. However, PRTG cannot tell you "process so-and-so is using up 100% CPU load for 30 seconds or more".

You can use Powershell to extract the name of the process with the highest CPU load and use this via the Exe/Script sensor. Our example script however only works on the local probe or locally on the remote probe.
