Description dyuan 2012-03-23 05:42:43 EDT
Description of problem:
In the guest, the cpu usage is 100% from task manager, but it's around 29% from virt-manager.
It's better to return "no respons" when the guest cpu usage reached 100% but not stay at 29%, or it will be confused for users.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. boot up a guest, xp-i386
2. open the IE browser, or issue other programme to occupy 100% cpu
3. track the cpu usage from task manager
Actual results:
unmatched cpu usage from the tools to the guest task manager.

Expected results:
Presents the true state of guest.

What CPU usage column, Guest CPU or Host CPU? How many VCPUS does the VM have?

Comment 3 dyuan 2012-08-14 04:20:41 EDT
Sorry for the late responds.

I have 4 physical cpu in host and 1 virtual cpu in guest, make the cpu usage to 100% in guest then get the 25% cpu usage in "performance -- CPU usage" of "show virtual hardware details", I know that it shows the usage per the whole physical cpus in host. 
But I think it should be different in "Connection Details -- Overview", because I get the cpu usage in "show virtual hardware details" against the single vm but not connection.

I believe this is behavior by design, so I'm closing as NOTABUG.
