Add sum of two values to timeseries chart

Hello, brand new Splunk user here getting my feet wet with the product, but I may be asking too much of myself at this point. We'll see.

I have a Windows forwarder sending messages to an Indexer on Linux. The forwarder is configured to send CPU stats, and the events are split between "% User TIme" and "% Processor Time". There is one event from each type sent every 10 seconds. I managed to create a timeseries chart with two lines - one line for % User TIme, and another line for % User time. Here is my search:

index=main source="Perfmon:CPU Load" | timechart max(Value) by counter

What I'd like to do now is add a third line representing the sum of these two values at a given point. So for example say at 10:00:00, I get an event with % User Time = 10 and % Processor Time = 20. At this point, I'd like a third line representing the sum of those two values (10 + 20 = 30), but overlaid on the same chart.

I have spent a few hours now reading the doc, Answers, and experimenting, but haven't come close. Seems like it should be pretty simple?

What you need is "addtotals" command. See more details here.

Yep, that was it. Just had to add an additional pipe to my search:

index=main source="Perfmon:CPU Load" | timechart max(Value) by counter | addtotals *Time Total row=t

Easy! Thanks so much!!!
