ONTAP Cloud Utilization Question

[ Edited ]

Why does my cloud watch metric show 100% utilization even though ONTAP Cloud is sitting idle?

 

 

 

Re: ONTAP Cloud Utilization Question

Cloud ONTAP does not perform the halt CPU instruction when idle and this makes Cloud ONTAP’s idle thread appear to be using 100% CPU. Performance measurements found that performing the halt instruction when idle had a definite impact on total IOPS for various tests
 
NetApp recommends viewing Cloud ONTAP’s CPU consumption using the sysstat command
