I don't know what machines you're using, but on almost all the FreeBSD
machines I use, most of the tasks are idle, and thus CPU and WCPU will
be the same (0.00, 0.00). As for running tasks, yes, Brian must be
thinking of something else. That said, the numbers are almost always
the same, at least given my sample set.
