CPU utilization on DPDK Applications (like vMX) is not a good way of representing utilization.  vMX uses Poll mode drivers which consume all of the CPU cycles on a given thread whether there is 1 packet or 4 million.
If you are looking to link utilization, packet or bps I/O is better.

    Is any way to (i.e. CLI command) to display CPU cores utilization for vMX ?
    I just know 'show pfe statistics traffic bandwidth" - but it's display
    amount of traffic vs installed vMX license.
