You could use the
transaction command with eval-based start/end conditions. It seems like there could be a better way to do this (I'm curious too), but this approach does seems to work based on a simple test that I ran. (But there could be corner cases, I'm not sure.)
sourcetype="WMI:CPUTime" | transaction host startswith=eval(PercentProcessorTime>=80) endswith=eval(PercentProcessorTime<80) | where duration>=1800
One questions I have is this: Do you want to include in your results a situation where the CPU is say running at 90% for 15 minutes, then it drops to 70% for less that a minute (just long enough for 1 WMI snapshot; perhaps due to a blocking condition) and then returns to 90% for another 20 minutes. Certainly this would seem to fit into the general criteria of what you are trying to find, but but it wouldn't technically match. Some kind of weighted average approach would probably allow this situation to be captured.
