Network Traffic

Network traffics are not checked against thresholds yet. Checked value can be collisions or errors. But I don't have ideas which actions will be invoked if i.e. collisions goes up.

Processes

Processes are not measured yet. But number of processes can be a metric.

Swapping/Paging activity
