    e.g.
    97.6%
    0.9%
    0.9%
    0.6%

    omfgz! rounding to the nearest whole number!!! ahhhhhhh! That is so stupid!! Seems to me P07r0457 is the one who fails.

    i know how the fuck it works, sonny. It's supposed to be a "quick laugh".

    Notice the bottom says 3% usage.

    Nah, I don't think you do. I noticed the 3% as well, but you didn't highlight that. Don't worry, I still think you're a nerd :mamoru:

    No, the algorithm should add all of the rounded process CPU usages together and subtract them from 100. What they did doesn't necessarily reflect a failure to do the math right, but a failure to think through the algorithm before implementing it.

    looks like someone fails at spelling arithmetic

    :uh: And what happens if the rounded non-idle state processes add up to more than 100%?

    That's what I was thinking :rofl:

    On the other hand Jolly maybe you have a super CPU that can push past 100% :bowdown:

    Someone on OT fails to properly optimize their system...

    900mb commit charge and 45 running processes? jesus christ I am at 60mb idle and about 6 processes... what were you doing when you took that screenshot?

    Then you cap the idle process at a minimum of 0. Duh.

    I always found it stupid and irritating that SYSTEM takes up all unused processing time. Retardo.

    I had Zend, MySQL, IIS, Apache (yes both), and Photoshop open... along with several explorer windows, ssh client, mysql query browser, itunes, opera and firefox.

    so 900MB is running on the low-end of what I am usually pulling. I bet PS had sent it's stuff to disk... because when that's actually running in the foreground it's closer to 2GB.

    I think he meant on the bottom end, so you don't wind up with negative numbers.

    It would have been simple enough for them to just use an extra decimal place.

    But simpler still is that it doesn't really matter.

    :dunno:

    You cap the CPU USAGE READOUT for the idle process at 0, dumbass. The readout is just a convenient abstraction for the user to look at, it doesn't have to be perfectly accurate.

    It's also possible that he uses his machine for more than just browsing OT.

    Then why are you fucking with the algorithm if it doesn't matter whether it's fucking accurate?

    Fuck I hate when you hang your hat on some obtuse logic.
