What tool are you using to monitor CPU usage?

Does 100% really mean 100%?

I ask, because the tool I use reports based on cores. So my computer, which uses an Intel Core 2 Duo (with 2 cores) has a maximum CPU utilization of 200%. And 4-core models max out at 400%, and so on.

Does the tool you're using let you see how much CPU capacity is being used by each process?
