[Xen-users] xenmon results


i use OpenSuse 10.2 (Linux with Xen 3.0.3 on a Intel P4 2.8 
GHz with Hyperthreads. There are 2 DomU's installed. I want to measure the cpu 
load that produce the domains. I tried to use xenmon, but i get strange results 
on the tests.

cpu cpu(%) blocked(%) waited(%)

0   3.231   13.423    0.206

There are several entries where the sum of cpu(%)+blocked(%)+waited(%) <> 100% 

cpu cpu(%) blocked(%) waited(%)

1   15.937  73.033    33254.933

Under load approximately 30% of the "waited(%)" results are >100%.

It seems that the correctness of the results depends on the load. With high 
load i get more strange results.

Did i misinterpret the data or is there an error in xenmon?

Thanks for any hint...

with kind regards
