How do I monitor the CPU usage of a process?
When trying to monitor the CPU usage of a process, the sum of percent utilization from each CPU core is returned instead of a value from 1-100.
Follow these steps to accurately monitor the CPU usage of a process:
This will take the sum of CPU usage for each processor and divide it by the number of processors returning a value of 0-100. With the WMI metric for number of processors already created, you can re-use it with any additional process you wish to monitor. The polling interval for the WMI metric is every hour because it is not a dynamic value and does not need to be polled on a frequent basis.
