Monitor CPU usage on Windows
Figure 1: ActiveXperts Network Monitor CPU Check
ActiveXperts solution to monitor CPU Usage
ActiveXperts Network Monitor provides the 'CPU Usage' check to monitor processor(s) on Windows platforms. If the CPU load exceeds the limit, a notification is being generated.
ActiveXperts Network Monitor uses WMI Class Win32_Processor to retrieve the CPU load.
A CPU Usage check takes the following parameters:
- Computer - The NetBIOS name, DNS name or the IP address of the server you want to monitor;
- All CPU's or This CPU - Select 'All CPU's' or 'This CPU'; on a multi-processor system, you can monitor a specific CPU ('This CPU'). To monitor all processors on a single- or multi-processor system, select 'All CPU's';
- Max. CPU Usage - Maximum allowed CPU usage (%);
- Credentials- If different credentials are required to access the remote server, specify login and password here.
