Host CPU Table

The Host CPU Table displays information about each host's processors.

The Host CPU Table has the following columns:

Table 1. Host CPU Table
Column Description
Host ID The index into the host table.
CPU ID A unique value for each CPU within a host.
Ticks The number of CPU ticks that have occurred. A tick is 1/100th of a second. Linux® uses the term jiffy for this amount of time.
Idle Ticks The number of ticks where the CPU is not doing anything (that is, running the idle task).
Non-idle Ticks Non-idle ticks represent time that the CPU is either in user or system mode.
Avg Load The average, as calculated over the last minute, of the utilization percentage for the processor. Commands such as top show the average utilization for shorter periods of time, such as only the last three seconds.
