    When using sql profiler I see various sp's coming along with a cpu time of around 500ms, however when I look at the processor usage in perfmon, it hovers at around 5%. What could cause this ?

    If a stored proc takes 500 ms doesnt necessarily mean it caused cpu hike..it just took longer to execute..not necesarily at high cpu..

    What would cause something like this ?

    Could be any other processes running on SQL Server, such as schedule jobs or bulk insert or even anti virus scan during that time.
    Just capture SP_WHO2 to see what other processes are running and consuming the CPU.
    At the moment if there is no performance issues then just ignore, continue the database maintenance tasks to keepup the performance.
