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.
