CPU utilization on Windows systems

Distribution: official part of Check_MK
License: GPL
Supported Agents: Windows

This check monitors the CPU utilization on a Windows system using the windows performance counters (agent section winperf_processor). This check replaces winperf.cpuusage which is outdated since version 1.1.11i1

Setting a level for warning or a critical state is possible, but might not be very useful, since the computed value is an average over just one check cycle. Consider to set the average option for this purpose. A combination with a larger value of max_check_attempts or notification_delay might also be useful here.
