Sensor units?



Hi, maybe this is a simple question,

can you please help me to reply the answer i have from my team, we are monitoring Windows services, and we have a live graph with

(%)Downtime (MByte)Working Set (MByte)Private Bytes (%)CPU Usage (average per Instance) (#)Threads (#)Handles (%)CPU Usage (Total) (#)Instances

We are not sure what are those units: (#)Threads (#)Handles (#)Instances

The sensor is monitoring the Number of Threads, Handles and Instances. "#" simply stands for "Count/Number of".

Kind Regards,
