Guest OS % Processor Time vs % VM Processor Time

I am looking at the performance of a highly used guest VM through perfmon. Win 2008 R2 4vCPU. RAM not an issue.

The standard % Processor Time from Windows is easy to interpret.

My reading around VM Processor Time was that it would display the amount of utilised CPU as seen by ESXi. By comparing the two I was hoping to work out the best way to increase performance.

Can anyone help me interpret 500% VM Processor Time?

Cheers

Did you check your virtual machine's performance by ESXTOP?
