Adds the ability to process monitor to notify when process exceeds CPU% threshold

Posted on August 13th, 2012

With Overseer 4.x, we introduced the Windows Process Monitor resource type. This has been well received, and now many customers use Overseer as their primary process monitoring software. Overseer already supports monitoring the # of processes, lack thereof, memory consumption, etc. One check that many customer have asked for, however, is failing if the CPU% for the process gets too high.

In Overseer 5.0, we’ve added this feature to our ┬áprocess monitor software. Now, you can set a process monitor resource type to fail if the CPU% goes above a defined threshold.
