CPU usage quota


  • Hi,

    I have two questions about the CPU usage quota:

    1: How do I get a real measurement? The task manager only displays seconds. So if I have a quota of one second I don't know anything. Is there a more accurate number?

    2: Does one second mean one second? One second on slow computers and one second on very fast computers? This could be a very very big difference?

    Best Regards

    // Edit: 3: Is there a way to find out if my task is suspended due to the quota?

  • See below link for how to find your CPU usage for a given background task on Windows Phone:


    I have not yet found a way to know if the task is suspended due to the quota being exceeded.

  • Hi,

    thanks but my question was originally about Windows and not Windows Phone. I couldn't find this app for Windows so I suppose it doesn't exist?

  • Hi,

    There's PowerShell Cmdlets available for observing the background tasks, please see http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/dn296421.aspx . However, even though these can get you one step further and offer you some useful information, there doesn't seem to be much resources available on how to interpret the results. I'd think these are the best tools available though, or if there's better tools available, I'd be also happy to know about them.
