Is there a plugin that does that? If yes, how do I set it up?

I have Nagios on a single server setup (nagios monitoring the box where it's hosted), so I don't need any fancy way of getting that info from the network.

There are cpu check pluging here, you could browse many plugings in Nagios Exchange website, or in monitoring exchange website. Why you don't use cacti for such things, or may be Munin that will permit you easily to monitor the performance of your computers, networks, cpu, memory, file system ...

If the OS is Windows, this works.

I guess you wanted to say cacti; nagios sends alerts when some conditions are met

Nagios can and is also used for monitoring levels. – John Gardeniers Oct 12 '09 at 11:53
