Virtual Processors

All execution in the root and child partitions (where guest VM’s run) happens on Virtual Processors.  The virtual processor counters are very useful because they help you understand how much guest VM’s are running and where they are running. 

Virtual Processors (VP) are the unit of execution for a partition and each partition contains one guest virtual machine (VM).

The grid located at the top of the window shows each individual virtual processor with the following information for each one:

% Hypervisor Run Time The percentage of time the guest VP is running in hypervisor code on an LP or for the _Total the total across all guest VP’s.
% Guest Run Time The percentage of time the guest VP is running in non-hypervisor code on an LP or for the _Total the total across all guest VP’s.
% Total Run Time This is just a sum of %Guest Run Time + % Hypervisor Runtime on a per VP basis.

By default, the last snapshot is displayed in the grid. Use the slidder (or the arrow buttons) located at the top of the grid to navigate through the collected snapshots. In monitoring, the "Auto-Update" button must be unchecked to be able to navigate through the collected snapshots.

Select one or more processors in the grid (Check box at the left of the grid) to update the graphes located at the bottom of the window. If several processors are selected, the statistics are aggregated.
