The answer is 'neither'.   You're vastly misunderstanding the purpose of 
both of these tools -- they're not meant for monitoring things like CPU 
load and disk space.   While you can probably hack them to do it, it's 
not what they're designed to do, and you won't be able to generate 
alerts in any meaningful way with them.

You should be looking at tools like Nagios, Zenoss, Zabbix, OpenNMS, etc.
