Custom SQL Alert not working

To reproduce create rule form collection “Processor usage over 85%”.

  1. Change 85% to 1%
  2. Wait 5 min and Dashboard shows servers with CPU usage over 1%
  3. Edit rule and go to "Advance ". Chane “processors.processor_usage > 1” to “processors.processor_usage > 90”.
    Override SQL = ON
  4. Wait 5 min. Dashboard still show servers with CPU usage over 1%.
  5. Edit rule and go to "Advance ". Override SQL =OFF.
    Go to “Main”
    Change persantage to 85.
    Wait 5 min. Servres with CPU usage less than 85% will disapeare.

Actually, Rules - LibreNMS Docs
example CPUs over 10% not working.

Average rule for all CPUs over 10% (Rules - LibreNMS Docs) should be:
SELECT devices.device_id,ROUND(AVG(processors.processor_usage)) as cpu_avg FROM devices,processors WHERE (devices.device_id = ? AND devices.device_id = processors.device_id) AND (devices.status = 1 && (devices.disabled = 0 && devices.ignore = 0)) = 1 GROUP BY devices.device_id HAVING AVG(processors.processor_usage) > 10;

That does work, but might limit the data available to your alert template.

We do not need too much data in alert mail.
We must have server name and maybe Processor Average percentage number.
Alert template should be customize.
This template tested and it works:

{{ $alert->title }}
Severity: {{ $alert->severity }}
@if ($alert->state == 0) Time elapsed: {{ $alert->elapsed }}
Timestamp: {{ $alert->timestamp }}
Unique-ID: {{ $alert->uid }}
Rule: @if ($alert->name) {{ $alert->name }} @else {{ $alert->rule }} @endif
@if ($alert->faults) Faults:
@foreach ($alert->faults as $key => $value)
Processors Average: {{ $value[‘cpu_avg’] }}
