I do a similar thing but my polling interval is smaller and variable
depending on system workload.  I write the results to an IFS file that's
#INCLUDEd by a Net.Data macro.  My status indicator is thus a web page
pop-up window that auto-refreshes every minute.  Based on CPU% it shows
low - medium - high in green - yellow - red but by design does not give
the actual percentage busy.

As our jobqs can back up from time to time it also gives overall jobq
depth for all non-held jobqs. 

I'm considering enhancing it with other system indicators like disk busy

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.
