CPU Performance Chart

In this article

    The CPU chart displays historical statistics on CPU utilization for the selected virtual infrastructure object.

     CPU Performance Chart

    Host

    The following table provides information on predefined views and counters that apply to hosts.

    Chart View

    Counter

    Measurement Unit

    Description

    CPU Usage

    Total Run Time

    Percent

    Percentage of time a physical processor required to run both VMs and the hypervisor itself.

    Total Run Time

    GHz

    Amount of time physical processor required to run both VMs and the hypervisor itself.

    CPU Usage by Host/VMs

    Guest Run Time

    Percent

    Percentage of time a physical processor required to run VMs.

    Hypervisor Run Time

    Percent

    Percentage of time a physical processor required to run a hypervisor.

    vCPU Total Run Time

    Percent

    Percentage of time vCPUs were used by all VMs on a host.

    CPU Idle Time

    Idle Time

    Percent

    Percentage of time a physical processor spent in an idle state.

    CPU Interrupts

    Total Interrupts/sec

    Number

    Number of interrupts to which a processor was asked to respond. Interrupts are generated from hardware components like hard disk controller adapters and network interface cards. A sustained value over 1000 usually indicates of a problem.

    CPU Bottlenecks

    Host CPU Wait Time

    Microsecond

    Average amount of time that VMs on a host spend waiting for their virtual processors to be dispatched onto a logical processor.

    Virtual Machine

    The following table provides information on predefined views and counters that apply to VMs.

    Measurement Unit

    Description

    CPU Usage

    Guest Run Time

    Percent

    Percentage of time a physical processor required to run a VM.

    Guest vCPU Run Time

    MHz

    Amount of virtual CPU resources used by a VM.

    CPU Usage by Host

    Hypervisor Run Time

    Percent

    Percentage of physical processor time consumed by Hyper-V host for a VM.

    Total Run Time

    Percent

    Percentage of time a Hyper-V host required to run a VM, plus time consumed by the VM itself.

    vCPU Total Run Time

    MHz

    Amount of vCPU resources consumed by all VMs on a host.

    CPU Bottlenecks

    CPU Wait Time

    Microsecond

    Amount of time that a virtual processor spends waiting to be dispatched onto a logical processor.

    For objects that are parent to hosts and VMs, Veeam ONE Client displays rollup values.
    Charts for folders and clusters display rollup values for all hosts in the container. Chart for a resource displays rollup values for all VMs registered as shared resources.
