Inactive Wait Count

Metric Description

Inactive Wait Count is the number of context switches a thread experiences when it is excluded from execution by the OS scheduler due to either synchronization or preemption. Excessive number of thread context switches may negatively impact application performance. Reduce synchronization contention to minimize synchronization context switches, or eliminate thread oversubscription to minimize thread preemption.
