Using Super Metrics in VCOPS is quite common and well documented. There are also nice blog posts (http://www.batchworks.de/using-super-metrics-to-monitor-cpu-ready-part1/ and http://www.virtualclouds.co.za/?p=254). When creating a report or a dashboard, I like to show the metric in percentage. Percentage is nice as you know, since the human mind instantly sees this value as 'wow, that's high or hmm, that's pretty low' since the range is between 0 and 100 most of the time.

VCOPS includes a lot of percentage metrics already. However, if you look at for example CPU Co-stop, System, Idle - they are only available in milliseconds (ms). Now there is a small catch you'll need to take into account which I'll show you in this blog post.
