CPU Utilisation Threshold

Votes:

0

Your Vote:

Up

Down

I would like to be able to setup a rule as follows

  • When total utilization of CPU is >95% for 3 mins or more then set CPU utilization sensor to error/down (red status alert)

I don't want to send any email notifications. I just want this to display on the alerts page in PRTG as a red alert.

Is this something that I can set on a per sensor basis or is this a global change ?

Hi mattrobinson,

Thank you for the post.

Please note that this is not possible in PRTG. PRTG can only send delayed notifications. The Sensor state cannot be changed with delay.

If you have any further questions, please do not hesitate to contact us again.

Best Regards,

Thanks for the reply.

Would this not be a nice feature to build into new releases ? I would image I'm not the only person that would like this.

Hi mattrobinson,

We provide the possibility to create a feature request in our Knowledge Base. If you want to do this, please follow the steps described in this article: https://kb.paessler.com/en/topic/79245-how-can-i-propose-new-features-or-sensors-for-prtg

Please note that we may reject the request as we already discussed this feature internally. The result is that this feature can cause many issues regarding dependencies and notification triggers and therefore increases complexity. If, for example, a Ping Sensor is delayed in the "Down" state and all other Sensors are dependent on this Ping Sensor, the other Sensors will only be displayed as "Down" because the target device cannot be reached and the Ping Sensor changes state with a delay.

If you have any further questions, please do not hesitate to contact us again.

Best Regards,
Moritz Heller
