Hello Isaac,

CPU Total Time: Percentage of total time the CPU was in use.

Isaac, CPU Total Time is the sum of all time spent in the CPU, no matter the type of time (excluding Idle Time). So it's the sum of User, System, Other, IO, etc.

If you plot CPU Total Time and CPU Idle Time on the same chart, and set the Aggregation to MAX and set Resolution to max, you'll see that these two values are mutually exclusive of each other. A Stacked Chart view of these two measures will show the sum of the values, which will always be 100%.

Hi Joseph,


Now I understand this measure.

Thank you for your response, it was helpful.
