CPU usage mismatch or usage over 100%

Problem

CPU percent usage data between APM and Infrastructure seems contradictory, or your CPU usage exceeds 100%.

Cause

CPU usage data for APM is different than CPU usage data for Infrastructure.

  • In APM, CPU percent usage measures aggregate usage of all instances of an application or service on a given server.
  • In Infrastructure, CPU percent usage is measured differently depending on if you are viewing CPU usage in relation to hosts, or to processes.
