the exact meaning of pcpu


according to the manual:

pcpu
The ratio of CPU time used recently to CPU time available in the same period, expressed as a percentage. The meaning of ``recently'' in this context is unspecified. The CPU time available is determined in an unspecified manner.

but i want to know exacetly what "recently" means. is there any possible way to know that?
