CPU Core Sensors Test

For each CPU core available in the host system, this test reports the current speed, temperature and power of the CPU core. In addition, this test reports the percentage of load handled by each CPU core. This way, administrators may be alerted to the impending load balancing issues caused by the CPU cores.

Target of the test: Any host system

Agent executing the test: An internal agent

Output of the test: One set of results for each CPU core of the host system being monitored.

Configurable parameters for the test
  1. Test period - How often should the test be executed.
  2. Host - The host for which the test is to be configured.
Measurements made by the test
Measurement Description Measurement Unit Interpretation

Clock Speed

Indicates the current speed of this CPU core.


A very low value for this measure indicates that the CPU core is slow.

Comparing the value of this measure across CPU cores will point you to that CPU core that is currently very slow.


Indicates the current temperature of this CPU core.


The value of this measure should be within optimal range. A sudden/gradual increase in the value of this measure may impact the functioning of the CPU core and needs to be attended to immediately.

Load Utilized

Indicates the percentage of load handled by this CPU core.


Comparing the value of this measure across the CPU cores will help you identify the CPU core that is overloaded.

Power utilized

Indicates the power consumed by this CPU core.
