I am trying to understand the CPU usage of an ASA 5505 unit which I've installed. I understand the meaning of "Per Core" stats below (15.8, 13.3, 12.5), but I dont understand the meaning of "Current control point elapsed vs the maximum control point elapsed"?
Can someone please help me understand what it means, what does the 100% there signify?
show cpu detailed Break down of per-core data path versus control point cpu usage: Core 5 sec 1 min 5 min Core 0 15.8 (0.0 + 15.8) 13.3 (0.0 + 13.3) 12.5 (0.0 + 12.5) Current control point elapsed versus the maximum control point elapsed for: 5 seconds = 100.0%; 1 minute: 100.0%; 5 minutes: 100.0%
Thanks in advance.
While the meaning itself is unclear, let's look at it instead of "control points" as "sample points"
You're measuring the amount of CPU during a period, that's from a control point to a control point + interval of measurement. So, you're just defining the start and end points for sampling.
Hope this helps,

Hi Darren(s) , that post speaks about the first line of the output. it does not give the details on current control point vs maximum control point. Sorry, if I missed the point!
So, what does the line "
5 seconds = 100.0%; 1 minute: 100.0%; 5 minutes: 100.0%" suggest? Does it mean, that at some point in the past 5 minutes, the CPU touched 100%? Does it mean that the maximum possible CPU utilization value can be 100 (i think thats not a valid point anyways )?
Thanks for explaining.
