The COOKER_AVERAGE counter type formula provides the statistical midpoint of the data for a counter. The formula for this counter type sums repeated observations of one property in a Win32_PerfRawData instance, and divides the sum by the number of observations. This counter type is defined only within WMI, and it is not available to the performance monitoring technologies, such as Performance Counters Version 6.0.
