This is an command alias for NSClient++ found in its configuration file (usually C:\Program Files\NSClient++\NSC.ini). The command reports the average CPU usage from the last 5 minutes, 1 minute, and 30 seconds. $ARG1$ and $ARG2$ are macros that will be replaced with user-specified values. A notification will be triggered when the CPU usage exceeds the warning level ($ARG1$) and when the CPU usage exceeds the critical level ($ARG2$).
