Overview

Your process components and Realtime Process Monitors display CPU usage normalized for one core. This amount is aggregated per core. For example, the CPU usages shows 100% CPU utilization, if a process fully utilizes 1 core. If it utilized 3 cores out of 4 available cores, we would show 300% not 75%.


All system cores show aggregated utilization for the top XX CPU utilization. Only Linux servers support showing both percentages: aggregated percentage for all cores or a percentage based on a total 100%. The Linux "top" command supports both types of calculation and users can switch between them usually by pressing "I".
