    Interpreting ProcessCPU metric

    Frank Brüseke Newbie

      Hi Jopr experts,

      I am currently working on how to present my measurement results. I have seen that the JXM plugin has a value that measure how much CPU time the Java process used. This value is conviently aggregated per minute by Jopr automatically.

      My question is how I need to interpret this value? Usually CPU usage is expressed in percent value. So how do I convert these values?
      What I have come up with so far is the following formula:

      percent = ProcessCpuTimePerMinute / (ns_in_one_minute * number_of_CPUs)

      I have included the number of CPUs as I have seen values larger than 60 seconds of CPU time ocasionally. Is that correct?

      Kind regards
      Frank
