Performance Metric: cpu.wait.summation - what is it summing over?

I'm using SOAP requests to QueryPerf to pull some performance data about VMs. 

The request I'm making uses the realtime interval (20s), and pulls cpu.wait.summation amoung other things.

For one VM, i'm getting a return of 75979, which doesn't seem possible.  Considering the polling interval is 20000 ms, it means a wait of 379.90 %. 

Am I missing something in this calculation?  My thought is that it could be a sum of wait time over each CPU core, although it's not clearly the case
