# JOBCPUT% versus JOBCPU% in displays and in thresholds.

**Document ID :**KB000033690

Simply stated the JOBCPU% versus JOBCPUT% variables:

The metric JOBCPUT% does not divide by the number of processors.

If you have two processors, that would be a total of 200%.

To set a CPU threshold of 65 the calculation would be:

Two processors, a total of 200% so you would not divide by 2 to the threshold would be:

JOBCPUT% 130 or 2 x 65

JOBCPUT% Jobname Limit

JOBCPUT% Jobnam1 130

Per the doc that is in the SYSVIEW Parmlib CNM4BPRM member MVSTHRSH:

The limit value for JOBCPU% must be set based on the number of processors.

This is the percentage of the total CPU in use for all processors types.

The metric JOBCPUT% does not divide by the number of

processors.

Example: 4 processors - 100 / 4 = 25%

JOBCPU% = 25 would indicate that a job is

probably using 100% of one of the processors.

If the job has multiple TCBs, then the JOBCPU%

could be higher.
