How to setup a alert for cpu usage > 90% on a 4 processor cpu solaris box

Jump to solution
I would like to setup an alert to alert me if the cpu usage is greater than 90%. The problem is there are 4 cpus. I can create an alert for each one of the cpu's separately but would like to
usr the CPU auto-grouping and have the alert fire off if all 4 cpus reach a 90% level. Is that
what I should do for monitoring cpu. I know in the past our mysql service would get in a loop and use 90% or more of all the cpu's.

you must use the "CPU Usage" metric of platform  instead each CPU metric.
