Splunk Search

Timechart RAM or CPU usage by Linux process

Path Finder

1. There will be 2 separate charts: CPU usage by process, and RAM usage by process.

2. Sometimes more than one instance of a process is running. For example: there can be 2 splunkd processes, one using 170M and the other using 65M; in the chart I'd like this represented as 1 splunkd and the total of 235M between the 2 splunkd processes.

3. I'd like an overlay, an additional line on the timechart that shows the total RAM/CPU consumed on the server itself.

See below screenshots of the search I have constructed so far, and the printout of top on the server to demonstrate the presence of several processes by the same name, that I'd like to aggregate in the timechart's results.

Back from the dead!

Big ask I realize, but did you get any further with this? We're stuck trying to get a better handle on mem utilization of processes, and this is a big step in the right direction.
