CPU Usage Summary Might Appear as Negative Percentage, and Memory Available to New Virtual Machines Appears as Unavailable for GSX Server Hosts (1495)
- 0% means no change in the usage rate.
If usage remains constant at 10%, the volatility is 0%. If usage remains constant at 90%, the volatility is still 0%.
- Readings of -500% and 1000% are also possible in extreme situations, such as when the starting point is either too high or too low to compare.
The memory available for virtual machine information is supported only on ESX Server, not on GSX Server. Therefore, the GSX Server host shows the memory as unavailable.
