Yes, you can use the "check system" to test system wide resources - for example 
like this (customize the limits for your environment):

check system mysystem
  if cpu usage (user) > 90% then alert
  if cpu usage (system) > 90% then alert
  if cpu usage (wait) > 90% then alert
  if loadavg (1min) > 24 then alert
  if loadavg (5min) > 16 then alert
  if loadavg (15min) > 15 then alert
  if memory usage > 90% then alert
  if swap usage > 90% then alert
