[Xymon] Alerts based on rrd graphs

After digging through the old mailing list archives, I've got CPU
utilization (idle) alerting by adding this to the default section of my


        DS cpu vmstat.rrd:cpu_idl >=10 COLOR=green "TEXT=CPU Idle load
Normal at &V%"

        DS cpu vmstat.rrd:cpu_idl <10 COLOR=yellow "TEXT=CPU Idle load
High at &V%"

        DS cpu vmstat.rrd:cpu_idl <=5 COLOR=red "TEXT=CPU Idle load
Critical at &V%"


I then have, for one server where I want a yellow alert to go off for
less than 15% CPU idle, added to that host's entry in the analysis.cfg

Anyone doing any alerting on graphed rrd data?  Just looking for some
sample of what you might be doing.
