Hi,

i have 2 events with 3 fields: timestamp , servername, cpu_usage:

22-Mar-2022 00:00:00, server1 ,18

23-Mar-2022, 00:01:00 server1 , 82

22-Mar-2022 00:00:00, server2 ,78

23-Mar-2022, 00:01:00 server2 , 14

I want to calculate difference between 2nd and 1st event for each server. Can you please suggest, how this can be done?

That works, is it possible to add + and - in difference?
