Hello,

I am trying to calculate average CPU% utilized by top 10 processes on a Windows machine. When I do the search, I see more Values with 100. I am not clear what they mean. I tried reading many articles but did not find anything related. Can someone please help me on this. I am trying this

index=perfmon host=$Host$ object=Process counter="% Processor Time" (instance!="_Total" AND instance!="Idle" AND instance!="System")  | timechart avg(Value) by instance useother=f limit=0

I see a lot of Values with value 100 and I am lost. Not sure what those values really mean.

Can some one please help me get top the 10 processes with the highest CPU% utilization by process?

Here is docs explaining what is going on http://docs.splunk.com/Documentation/Splunk/7.1.3/Data/MonitorWindowsperformance at Processor Time counters do not return values of higher than 100
