sar report

I'm checking the sar report, and CPU idle utilization is 60%, is it acceptable?

Thanks in advance

No. Something is wasting your CPU. It should be within 5-10% for dual core systems.

Depends on the use-case of the machine. And you
can easily use top to find out just WHAT is using
CPU. There's no generic answer to your question,
