Monitor for underutilized resources

23 votes

Especially in cloud environments, new resources are quickly added, but often times not removed quickly enough. Often times, requested resources (i.e. EC2 instances) are far over-dimensioned for the task at hand.

It would therefore be very useful if Checkmk could also look for underutilized resources, e.g. by providing a view such as: "show me all EC2/VM/... where the average CPU util under the last 7 days has been <x%"

For some checks (i.e. temperature) it is already possible to specify upper and lower thresholds. I guess this would then be necessary for the typical utilization checks like CPU, memory, etc...
