I would like to create a threshold that triggers off the average for all cpus versus off of an individual cpu. Is this possible in a threshold and if so how?
For a Windows system running Prognosis Platform, use the NtCpuSystem (NTCPUSYS) record instead of the NtCpu (NTCPU) record.
The NtCpuSystem (NTCPUSYS) record shows combined usage of all the CPUs. The Where Clause should be set to trigger for a percentage greater than XX of the BusyPercent (BUSY) field.
Example Where Clause: BUSY > 70
Sorry didn't mention that I'm looking for the average on our nonstop systems.
I have not been able to get a threshold to average CPUs. I was able to do this with an ANALYST.
If you have the AA product, here is an ANALYST rule that averages our 4 CPUs and logs an event to the problem log.
SECTION CONFIG CONVERT_TO_UPPER OFF NUMERIC CPU_00_BUSY NUMERIC CPU_01_BUSY NUMERIC CPU_02_BUSY NUMERIC CPU_03_BUSY END_SECTION SECTION RULE_DEF RULE Cpu-average-busy PRIMARY STRING RuleName STRING msgText RECORD cpu WHERE cpu.pebladea = "U" EVERY 60 seconds REFRESH 60 seconds ACTION SET RuleName := "Cpu-average-busy" END_ACTION IF @cpu.cpuno = 0 SET CPU_00_BUSY := @cpu.busy ! set msgText := subst( "CPU 0 @CPU_00_BUSY@% busy") !

Thanks Leon, I'll give this a go.
Unified Communications has always been an important part of companies' digital transformation efforts due to its ability to enable rich virtual collaboration and communication. But with COVID-19, we've reached a break-through point.
