[mrtg] Delayed Threshold Actions

I've checked the archive and havn't found if anyone is actually doing what I 
want to do.

I know the documentation tells how to set a script to execute when a 
threshold is crossed. Thomas J. Muggli describes how to do it very well at 

My problem is one of timing. What I want is an action to take place (e-mail 
sent, pager paged, etc) if the threshold remains crossed for 15 minutes 
(using the default 5 minute polling). If my CPU remains > 95% utilization 
for > 15 minutes, let someone know.

I know it is possible with sufficient programming and there are probably two 
or three ways to do it.

My question is - is anyone already doing it? How did you do it? Any pitfalls 
to avoid?
