Utilization Index?

Could someone help explain the concept of the utilization index? What do the numbers on the utilization index scale represent, and what do they factor in? I'm aware that the UI is a concept involving a "virtual cost" system between the resources displayed on the supply chain. However, I'm confused on how the UI is factored - for example, is the UI for the physical host based on the combined UI of the VM's on the physical host? Or is the UI based on the ratio of a single host against a combined number of physical hosts in the datacenter? Also, how does the Utilization Index factor into the utilization, and how is it different? What does a utilization index of 20000 vs. 14000 really mean? I know that it's a lot of questions to throw, but I'm just trying to get a better understanding of how VMTurbo works. Thank you, as always, for your input! It's been super helpful.
