Cache\Pin Read Hits %


  • The Hit % counters are best displayed in System Monitor in chart view. Hits often appear in short bursts that are not visible in reports. Also, the average displayed for Hit % on the status bar in chart view might not match the average displayed in report view because they are calculated differently. In chart view, the Hit % is an average of all changes in the counter during the test interval; in report view, it is the average of the difference between the first and last counts during the test interval.
