The PM400 System Resources Summary lists
Average, Peak and Maximum utilizations.

I'm not familiar with that particular tool, but normally, when
presented with both peak and maximum, maximum means the absolute limit
of the system, and peak means the highest actual utilization achieved.
That is, the peak is the high water mark.

So, if these were stats for a car during a trip, the maximum speed
might be 155 mph (I think BMWs are rev-limited to this speed), the
peak speed (highest instantaneous speed achieved on this trip) might
be 80 mph, and the average speed (overall distance traveled divided by
total time elapsed) more like 50 mph.
