check_cpu with top consumers in NSClient++ (part 1 of 2)
Posted by Michael Medin at 2013-12-04
An often requested feature is to include the top-5 consumers of high CPU load in the result from check_cpu (or checkCpu). I have often discarded this as a non-core feature since it is not something I think should be part of NSClient++ instead I think it should be a script. Since no-one has created such a script I figured it would make a nice blog post so here I describe in a step by step guide how to create such a script for NSClient++.
