5.2.1. CPU utilization alert

This alert is triggered if the percent of CPU utilization on the master host exceeds the configured critical threshold. This alert uses the Nagios check_snmp_load plug-in. Possible causes
  • Unusually high CPU utilization: Can be caused by a very unusual job/query workload, but this is generally the sign of an issue in the daemon.

  • A down SNMP daemon on the master node, producing an unknown status Potential remedies
  • Use the “top” command to determine which processes are consuming excess CPU

  • Reset the offending process

  • Check the status of the SNMP daemon
