    For linux, you already have two monitors out of the box :

    - Operating System Total Percent Processor Time (total system CPU %, targeted at the OS class)

    - Processor Percent Processor Time (single processor %, targeted at the Processor class)

    But by default, discovery for Processor class is disabled, so obviously the second monitor doesn't do anything since no processor is discovered.

    Therefore what you need to do is simply to enable the discovery for the Linux distro(s) you want to monitor.

    It's called "Discover Red Hat Enterprise Linux Server 5 Processor" for RHEL5, for example.
