I was reading in this document:

http://communities.vmware.com/docs/DOC-9279

that I could get a display like this:

'+' means busy, '-' means idle.
(1) PCPU 0:   +++++----- (%50)
    PCPU 1:   -----+++++ (%50)
    Core 0:   ++++++++++ (%100)
(2) PCPU 0:   +++++----- (%50)
    PCPU 1:   +++++----- (%50)
    Core 0:   +++++----- (%50)
(3) PCPU 0:   +++++----- (%50)
    PCPU 1:   ---+++++-- (%50)
    Core 0:   ++++++++-- (%80)

Open in new window



But I cant figure out the command to display that

What command sequence do I have to do to get this ?

Thanks
