- Check the CPU Usage Diagram on Details Instance page. If the trigger command is running there will be ups or downs on the graphic line of the CPU Usage Diagram. Then, the alert will notify the recipients based on the conditions that have been applied to it. For example, the recipients will receive an alert on their email address if the CPU Usage is above 1% and will keep receive the alert once per minutes based on the alert settings.
