Hi,

I have installed the add on Splunk_TA_nix.

I have attached the output I am seeing on Splunk from the add on.

Can you please explain the format? What do each of the fields mean?

Thanks,
Deepak

The CPU field is the CPU core, pctUser is the fraction of time the core spent handling commands given by actual users (not system processes/dameons), pctNice is the fractionof time the core spent being "nice" (yielding a running process for a higher priority process), pctSystem is the fraction of time the core spent handling non-user (system) commands, pctIowait is the fraction of time the core spent waiting for disk or port I/O, pctIdleis the fraction of time the core spent waiting for something to do.

Thankyou.

Is fraction of time = percentage?

If pctUser is 1.76, does it mean that the core spent 1.76% of the time handling commands by users?

Yes, every row should add up (roughly) to 100%.
