Hi-CPU util not generating Event...

Zenoss is monitoring my clients properly via SNMP, and the walks are working. My Trigger and Notification are working because when I add a Test-Event, it shows up in my email just fine. The problem: I know that certain clients on my network hit 100% CPU at night during the time they're being backed up. Zenoss is not registering any Events during this time. I added a new DataPoint, using the proper OID, and tested it by using that button that lets you apply it to a client of your choosing. It successfully comes back with an INTEGER value, matching what Windows Task Manager is reporting as the CPU util at the time I run the test. Question: how do I get Zenoss to create an Event when clients exceed 100% Once the Event is present, I'm sure that I'll get an SMTP message in my inbox... Thanks!

- Do you have some 100% value in your graph (or rrd file)
- How many minutes does 100% usage peak take usually (if it's just 1 minute and you are collecting load every 5 minutes -> it's feature)
- What is OID, which you use How many CPU do you have

Devops Monitoring Expert advice: Dockerize/automate/monitor all the things.

Too bad I can't u/l attachments -- I just created two. The CPU graph on one system I had my eye on does indeed seem like it's above 90% for more than 5 minutes; this should trip the threshold, but still, no SNMP events are recorded in the Event Console. The SNMP OID I'm using to collect data is, and the system has one CPU (as reported by SNMP walk).

When I issue the command, "snmpwalk -v2c against "

I get this output:

HOST-RESOURCES-MIB::hrProcessorLoad.2 = INTEGER: 13

--this seems like a good reading of the CPU (13%)

Thanks for the help....

What type of system are you trying to monitor


I see you mentioned Task Manager so i Will assume it is a Windows Server. Do you have SNMP informant Installed The correct OID should be for monitoring windows machines with the SNMP informant agent.
