CPU Usage

5 posts in this topic

I'm new to autoit a bit. Ive done a few projects before but im a little confused at the moment

I'm trying to get the CPU Usage of the computer and there doesn't seem to be anything on it

I did find ProcessListProperties.au3 and i put that into the code I'm using.

$list = ProcessList()
    for $i = 1 to $list[0][0]
        $avProcs = _ProcessListProperties($list[$i][0])
        if $avprocs[1][6] = 0 Then
        $d += 1 
            else
        $B += $avProcs[1][6]
        $C += 1
        endif
    next    
    
    $CpuUsage = ($b / $c)

I tried that but it is inefficient.

What i was thinking was _Processlistproperties($cpu)

I dont know what the CPU would be.

This is normal, unless you are running something taxing when you run PsaltyDS' script like a game or PRIME95. Run your script while a benchmark is in progress, it will ramp up.

Try this:

Global $wbemFlagReturnImmediately = 0x10
Global $wbemFlagForwardOnly = 0x20
Global $wbemFlags = $wbemFlagReturnImmediately + $wbemFlagForwardOnly
Global $strComputer = @ComputerName

Global $objWMIService = ObjGet("winmgmts:\\" & $strComputer & "\root\CIMV2")
Global $colItems = $objWMIService.ExecQuery("SELECT * FROM Win32_Processor", "WQL", $wbemFlags)

$n = 0
$sMsg = ""
For $objItem In $colItems
    $sMsg &= $n & ":  LoadPercentage: " & $objItem.LoadPercentage & @CRLF
    $n += 1
Next

MsgBox(64, "CPU Load", $sMsg)

:)

P.S. For comparison: On a 3GHz P4 HT CPU, it shows as two processors at 0% each when idle, show about 15-20% on one and about 50-60% on the other during an AV scan.

thank you psaltyds, that helps alot.

Something i dont understand would be that this program uses WMI (which i dont understand atm but will learn hopefully)

and the process wmiprvse.exe is for the WMI.

Is there another way to get the CPU usage without using another program to get it for you?

I'm not sure what you mean by "another program". The WMI is what ships with Windows for this specific purpose. I guess you could switch to C++ and get the proper libraries to code it as a standalone executable, but what's the problem with using WMI?
