Subject: [gentoo-user] CPU percentage reported by gkrellm
Date: Mon, 30 Oct 2006 18:31:15
1 I am puzzled why gkrellm does not always report 100% usage when I'm
2 running tasks that --- I assume --- always have at least one process in
3 the runnable state. I've never seen gkrellm pegged at 100%, even when I
4 run 3 or more emerges (with MAKEOPTS="-j2") at the same time. (I have a
5 single core Turion 64 processor.)
7 What happens is that gkrellm bounces between 99% and 100%. Does the
8 processor really go idle several times a second? Or is this an artifact
9 of, say, the way I/O processing is reported?
