Linux ps.sh script giving incorrect CPU usage information

New Member

We are having an issue with the "Splunk_TA_nix/bin/ps.sh" script and the way it's reporting cpu usage for servers with multiple cpu's. It caps the cpu at 100, but that value can actually go up to the number of cpu's * 100. So a server with 32 CPU's can reach 3200. Limiting that value to 100 seems to gives incorrect information.

Can anyone give some insight into what's going on here? We are on Enterprise 7.3 if that makes a difference.
