IN the past week I have seen both sides of this and I am getting confused. I know I always hear that the counters may not match, but I can't seem to make sense of why.
Last week I had a VM that from the Windows side was nearly unresponsive and pegged at 100%. However, Vmware CPU and ready counters showed little activity. Today I have a VM showing 100% CPU from the Vmware side, but when I check windows, the VM seems happy and responsive with task manager showing 20-40% util. How can it be so different?
