    I am using hyperic hq 4.4.0 .

    I am having problem understanding the CPU usage metric. The CPU usage metric for platform (server class machine) shows a percentage value which is different from the CPU usage metric value shown when I click CPU resource of the same machine
    ( location : Server.class.machine.com › CPU )


    Kindly help me understand why is there a difference in the two values. Also what exactly does this metric measure . Is it showing me the CPU Utilization ?
