How does Operata collect details on the available CPU?

The Operata Chrome extension captures the data needed to understand not only the available CPU, but also use of the CPU during the calls.

Operata uses a Chrome API to gather this data.

How does Operata collect CPU usage?

CPU usage data is captured whenever an agent is on a call, using the Chrome Browser API.

Operata takes a snapshot every five-seconds which is used to calculate the Average, Minimum and Maximum usage measures.

What thresholds are used to notify the agent and tag calls with low/very CPU capacity levels?

The Operata Settings/Configs section allows you to set these thresholds for each Group, to update just change the value and SAVE.

If the limits are breached the agent will be notified and the calls tagged with Poor Computer Performance insights.

Agent Alert Threshold - Poor Computer Performance (%)

  • Defaults: Low Threshold is more than 80% used for more than 30 seconds.

  • Defaults: Very Low Threshold is more than 90% used for more than 30 seconds.
