Matthias said, ESX cannot get absolute CPU time.
It just get CPU percentage.

  http://www.mail-archive.com/libvir-list redhat com/msg35769.html

And I think CPU percentage is very useful for user.
The user don't care about absolute CPU time value.
They want to know about CPU load of each host.

So I wrote this specification.

I agree. It's very userful. 
But ESX cannot change interval, perhaps.
