I wonder why this simple check for cpu usage percentage of Java
master threads fails?

Is my invocation wrong?

$ check_procs -w 3 -c 10 -m CPU -C java
CPU OK: 7 processes with command name 'java'

$ UNIX95= ps -C java -o pcpu,comm
 2.81 java
 7.24 java
 9.72 java
 2.61 java
 2.86 java
 3.17 java
 1.88 java

This is run on

$ uname -srvm 
HP-UX B.11.11 U 9000/800

with this plugin release

$ check_procs -V
check_procs (nagios-plugins 1.4) 1.43

I am also puzzled what the -P switch is good for in this context?

$ check_procs -w 3 -c 10 -m CPU -C java -P 3
CPU OK: 0 processes with command name 'java', PCPU >= 3.00
