How come the \Processor(*)\% Processor Time chart only shows 8 of my 16 cores?

The \Processor(*)\% Processor Time chart only shows 8 of my 16 cores.

 

I was asked by a manager why this is.  I don't know.  Can someone tell me?

 

Directly below the chart I see a table that does depict all 16 of the machine's cores.

The charts are limited to 10 counter instances that can be shown on the chart. This can be adjusted by changing the value of the $CHART_MAX_INSTANCES variable within the PAL.ps1 file. The PALAnalysis.ps1 file might need to be modified as well when doing multithreaded analysis.
