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 100 nanosecond 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



((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 represents the base count for the monitored components.


((Nx - N0) / (Dx - D0) ) x 100 / B


There are no counters of this type installed with the Windows Server 2003 family.
