We propose an output-based event-triggered control solution for linear discrete-time systems with a performance guarantee relative to periodic time-triggered control, while reducing the communication load. The performance is expressed as an average quadratic cost and the plant is disturbed by Gaussian process and measurement noises. We establish several connections with previous works in the literature discussing, in particular, the relation to absolute and relative threshold policies. The usefulness of the results is illustrated through a numerical example.
