    I'm using MS 3.1.1 with OS 10.10.2. Question on the large graphic display of CPU usage. In trying to overload the program, I was was getting the graph to read over 1900%. I don't get that. I thought each 100% represented a core, I have an 8 core machine. Take into account hyper threading and it goes double core, thus I would think my maximum would be 1600%. Maybe it's using the video card processor too? ;)

    Anybody got this one?

    OK - figured it out (i think). Looks like it is the same value as what is displayed in the Activity Monitor, without a decimal point. So CPU usage in the AM might read 385.2%. In MS it will read 3852%. My computer, with 8 cores and Hyper-Thread can read up to 1600.0% in the AM, 16000 in MS.

    (Tip of the hat to Eric Cardenas over at LPH for suggesting to look at the Activity Monitor)
