Windows 7: Monitoring CPU usage

Monitoring CPU usage

Hi all,

I'm looking for some kind of tools or something else to get the cpu usage in MHz( or GHZ).

I already searched in the performance monitor but only found the current cpu MHz value. (\\ProcessorPerformance(PPM_Processor_%PROCESS%)\\frequency").

If there are some other parameters that i can use in a calculation to become the cpu usage in MHz, I'm glad to hear this.

I still looking for methods and tools. but not really what i need.

Why I need this. Because we want to put this in my monitoring system. And make a graph out of it.

Kind Regards

What you are looking for is you already found. "\\ProcessorPerformance(PPM_Processor_%PROCESS%)\\frequency" That is the closet you are going to get to "CPU usage in MHz" However that only works if you have a processor that changes it frequency based on load. Intel Speedstep for example. But no, there is no CPU usage in MHz because that is not how things are done. If your processor is 500 MHz but the app you are running only requires 250 MHz, it will run on the processor at 500 MHz.
