Hi,

I have one ESXi host (DL 360p G8) with 5 vms running. All looks fine except when i checked the CPU %Ready value is around 4 and the cpu usage is less than 5%.

When i checked in the esxtop, Name "system" Cpu %ready and %wait is more than any VMs. Any idea why it happens and what "System" means here? I believe system is ESXi.

The "system" group contains the VMKernel system worlds.

Now which values are you looking out, and have you seen this handy chart to aid performance issues:-
