you already got some tips on how-to. But users will hit update for such a 
function quite 
often - so don't do the polling directly.

AFAIK, frequent update and usage of wrkactjob also eats up performance - this 
could be 
different for the API's.

I'd do it the following way:

Have a job running constantly that polls the CPU percentage every 5 minutes and 
writes it into
a data area or whatever.
Then your menu could use that dataarea to display the percentage.
