Could any one explain why VSTS reports that w3wp uses 8,056% of the processor

This is consistently happening

This looks strange. I believe it is possible to see a value greater than 100% on multi-processor systems (for the _Total instance), but that is certainly not the case here. The screen shot shows that it may be happening on a one minute interval. Is this the case

I would be interested in knowing if perfmon is also reporting the same value for this performance counter on one minute intervals.

Thanks,
Rick

Thanks for the help rick.

THe machine we are using is a single processor machine.

The test is ran for 2 mins. I was just trying to test some plug-ins and noticed this problem.

It normaly only happens once durrning the 2 min test, the screen shot shows a case where it happens twice. It ussualy happens 1:30 mins after the test starts but as you can see not allways.

So this problem is showing up in perfmon..... :( Which I guess means its a problem with that tool not VSTS... o you have a link to the fourm that could answer that question

 

I was told to ask this question here ....

Its no big deal, I ended up just writing a web test plug in to 0 out the bad values.

But I never did get it resolved. I asked in this forum a long time ago and they said to ask here...
