I'm looking for a way to have the free version of ESXi notify me (Email is fine) when CPU usage is over 60% for at least 60 minutes. Generally, my CPU usage is around 25%. If it stays high for a sustained period, something is wrong. I don't want to have to check it constantly. How can I setup notifications for certain events?


There's no way to do this natively with the free version of ESXi, but you can use a third party program to do this for you.

I use Veeam One Community Edition. It's free and it's a great product.
