Machine Load Monitoring

The Machine Load page provides historical reporting capability for viewing the utilization of the machines being monitored over a specified time period.

The plots shown on this page display the CPU capacity (number of processors or cores) and the 1, 5, and 15-minute load averages for the machine.
