I assume you mean the CPU frequency scaling monitor? This doesn't 
monitor CPU activity per se, it's for use with mobile processors with 
Speedstep technology. When the CPU isn't being maxed out it will run at 
a lower clock speed to save energy (to extend battery life) - mine flips 
between 600MHz and 1.4GHz.
