[nycbug-talk] discrepency between IPSO cpu stat and vmstat()

I seem to notice a significant discrepency (26% vs 62%) between the
IPSO voyager utilization report and a scripted reporting tool that
uses the vmstat(). Can anyone explain the reason for the difference?
How does IPSO voyager use to collect its data? How does vmstat do it?
Are there any better method of monitoring cpu utilization (for free)?
