This counter type measures the average time it takes to complete a process or operation. Counters of this type display a ratio of the total elapsed time of the sample interval to the number of processes or operations completed during that time. This counter type measures time in ticks of the system clock. The variable F represents the number of ticks per second. The value of F is factored into the equation so that the result is displayed in seconds.

Generic type



((N1 - N0) / F) / (D1 - D0), where the numerator (N) represents the number of ticks counted during the last sample interval, the variable F represents the frequency of the ticks, and the denominator (D) represents the number of operations completed during the last sample interval.


((Nx - N0) / F) / (Dx - D0)
