Description This counter type shows the active time of one or more components as a percentage of the total time of the sample interval. It measures time in 100ns units.

This counter type is a multitimer. Multitimers are designed to monitor more than one instance of a component, such as a processor or disk.

Generic type Percentage
Formula ((N1 - N0) / (D1 - D0)) x 100 / B, where the denominator (D) represents the total elapsed time of the sample interval, the numerator (N) represents the portions of the sample interval during which the monitored components were active, and the variable B denotes the base count for the monitored components.
Average ((Nx - N0) / (Dx - D0) ) x 100 / B
Example There are no counters of this type installed with Windows 2000.

Note Image Note

The Network Segment\ % Network Utilization counter installed by Network Monitor defines the variable B as the available bandwidth, rather than monitored components.
