This monitor checks the CPU utilization. If you receive an alert from this monitor, action may be required in order to bring the system back to an operational state.
An unhealthy state indicates that the CPU utilization is currently high. This may be caused by an application using excessive CPU resources.
To address high percent processor times choose one or more of the following options:
Identify processes that are running when the Percent Processor Time is at the highest.
Stop or kill any unnecessary identified processes.
Add additional CPUs or physical memory to the computer.
Move applications to one or more additional servers.
You may view the Top CPU Consumers by running the "Top 10 CPU Processes" Task from the State View.
