Calculating the CPU Profile

Calculating the CPU Profile

In adaptive dispatch mode, the Load Balancer uses the CPU profile to rank the computing throughput of each CPU and bus architecture in a grid. This ensures that nodes with higher processing power get precedence for dispatch. This value is not used in round-robin or metric-based dispatch modes.
The CPU profile is an index of the processing power of a node compared to a baseline system. The baseline system is a Pentium 2.4 GHz computer running Windows 2000. For example, if a SPARC 480 MHz computer is 0.28 times as fast as the baseline computer, the CPU profile for the SPARC computer should be set to 0.28.
By default, the CPU profile is set to 1.0. To calculate the CPU profile for a node, select the node in the Navigator and click

Recalculate CPU Profile Benchmark
. To get the most accurate value, calculate the CPU profile when the node is idle. The calculation takes approximately five minutes and uses 100% of one CPU on the machine.
You can also calculate the CPU profile using
infacmd
. Or, you can edit the node properties and update the value manually.
