Description:

What is the difference between the Metrics CPU | Utilization % (process) and CPU | {Processor number}: Utilization % (aggregate)?

Solution:

CPU | Utilization % (process) describes the percentage of CPU the JVM is using.

CPU | {Processor number}: Utilization % (aggregate) describes the total utilization of CPU, including JVM and non-JVM processes. This is what is seen for

the total load of the server on the CPU using the top or ps commands for UNIX or Task Manager for Windows.

If wanting to know the overall CPU utilization on a 4-processor machine, including JVM and non-JVM, this data is available in Introscope by creating a Metric Grouping

and a Calculator for each processor.
