ECP CPU performance graph

My cpu utilization shows 100%. Is that 100% of all 3 cpu's, or all of 1 out of 3 cpu's are fully utilized?

Re: ECP CPU performance graph

Bob,

I'm not sure of ECPs definition. MONITOR displays percentage of *ONE* CPU, so a 3 CPU system would range from 0 to 300% for CPU utilization.

Simple experiment. Create a DCL procedure:

$ CREATE loop.COM
$ loop: GOTO loop

Submit one copy, wait a minutes, submit another, then another a minutes later. Now delete the entries.

Look at your ECP graph. assuming not much other activity on the system, you will either see 3 steps 0 33% 66% 100% or 0 100% 200% 300%, from which you can determine the ECP CPU scale.
