[Check_mk (english)] Using a tag to set up ps.perf check

I want to set up a tag in WATO that I can add to a host that will 
include a ps.perf check for a specific process on that host.

I've defined a tag, defined the ps.perf check and modified one host to 
have that tag.  But the ps.perf check doesn't get added to the host.

Not really sure if I should be setting up a host tag group or an 
auxillary tag.

My goal is to have a selectable tag available for each host that enables 
a ps.perf check for the backup daemon that runs on some of our systems.  
Not all systems get backed up.  I think I just haven't wrapped my head 
around the WATO way of doing things.  My old setup didn't use WATO and I 
just added the tag to each host that needed it and then had:

checks = [
     ( ["nsr"], ALL_HOSTS, "ps", "NetWorker", ( "/usr/sbin/nsrexecd", 1, 
1, 1, 1 ) ),
