Hi,

What's "Max System"? Why should it be so low? See attached snapshot.

Thanx.

Hi,

Max System is related to System CPU time. When you execute a program it does most of its work in User CPU time, while whenever it requires something from the OS (kernel) it is registered as System CPU time. A high System CPU time can be caused by things like I/O issues or an application that uses the system inefficiently by, for example, asking the OS for the resource usage of all processes once every millisecond.
