Hello All,

For a long time, I've been using the SYS_BUSY_?? function to retrieve the percentage of workload usage from the AutomationEngine to display it in reports, graphics and so.

But actually, I always had questions about what kind of information this usage carries and I'll count on my community fellows to guide me through them:

1) What is considered on the workload usage calculation (db performance, number of executions, number of connections, ...)?
2) In the usage graphic of the System Overview window, what is the math behind it (60 min all wps average, for example?)?
3) Since the sys_busy cannot retrieve the information from a particular WP, is is possible to retrieve the columns B.01, B.10 and B60 (System Overview > AutomationEngine) data from the db? Which table(s) contain this info?
