CPU utilization metrics

Server hardware CPU utilization statistics are gathered from the historical data stored on an iLO every five minutes.

Interconnect CPU utilization statistics are fetched from the interconnect every 60 seconds when you open the interconnects page.

Interconnect CPU trend graph displays the CPU utilization trend for last 5 minutes. The graph is updated every 60 seconds while the interconnect screen is open.

You can see the CPU utilization data for a component under CPU on the Utilization panel.

For interconnects:
  • If CPU utilization > 70%, a warning alert is displayed.
  • If CPU utilization > 90%, a critical alert is displayed.

Statistics for all CPUs are displayed in one graph.



CPU utilization

CPU utilization is expressed as a percentage.

A high percentage indicates that processes running on the device are consuming a considerable amount of CPU resources. If the percentage appears frozen at or near 100%, a process might not be responding.
