Difference between Max Total CPU and Max Kernel CPU

Hi All,

I was going through CPSizeme Report and found there are statistics of Max CPU and Max kernel CPU.

Kindly please let me know the difference between these two.

Thanks.

Re: Difference between Max Total CPU and Max Kernel CPU

CPU can be utilized in one of two ways:

  • By kernel-level processes (packet forwarding, some parts of the firewall kernel)
  • By user-level processes (other firewall processes)

Max CPU covers both types of CPU usage.
