let's say logical CPU count has 16 and histogram starts with 0-16 which means 17. could someone explain?

Hi Hashim,


What was the histogram you were mentioning? and how did you built that?

Could you please let us know the output of /proc/cpuinfo and lscpu?

here is the output of lscpu:

In Hotspots by CPU Utilization, I see total logical CPUs as 16 but the histogram shows from 0-16.

one more clarification I need is if my application is using only 0 and 1 CPUs during the application run (as shown in the histogram), showing other CPUs poor/ok/Ideal means that they are being used by other applications by other user applications?

Hi Hashim,

 

In the Effective CPU Utilization Histogram of Vtune, the X-axis doesn't represent the CPU count. It represents simultaneously utilized logical CPU's which means if it shows 0 means the program is idle and if it shows 16 means that the program is utilizing all the 16 CPUs simultaneously.

In your case, the histogram shows that only one CPU is utilized at a time and it doesn't mean that CPU-1 is being utilized. It may also be the case that the program ran on different CPUs at different times but ran only on one CPU at a given time.

 

Let us know if you need any further explanation.

Prasanth
