CPU Monitor Template
The CPU Monitor Template enables you trigger alerts when either a Windows host's or a Docker container's CPU load exceeds a trigger threshold. This template is typically used by systems administrators that want to be notified when CPU load exceeds a threshold. When monitoring Windows hosts, the CPU Monitor Template uses WMI to query the CPU load. When monitoring Docker Containers, the CPU Monitor Template uses the Docker Engine REST API to query CPU load.
This template can be configured as an Agent-Based Template.
For more information see: Agent Server
