How many cpus are the vms you are referring to?
How big are the hosts?
Whats the biggest vm you have?
16 vCPU VMs
44 Physical CPU
Biggest VM has 16 vCPU
Total vCPU = pCPU
The % ready is for the entire vm, are you at one vm, then you want to divide that number by 16 which is small.
So always need to divide with number of vCPU and check that lower than 5% ?
Good to know if so as do not think this is normally stated clearly enough unless you can refer me to any documentation
btw am using esxtop and V to check this metric
