Telegraf procstat_cpu_usage - what does is exactly mean?

Hi @all,

we are using telegraf on Windows to collect some metrics about CPU Usage of processes.

Interestingly telegraf itself is using up to 30% of CPU.

Now the big question is:

  • Are these 30% of all available CPU Power
  • Are these 30% of one core
  • or are 30% in some sort relative to the whole CPU consumption of all processes ?

Thanks a lot for you help !

This value is the percentage of a core, a process that uses 2 cores fully will report 200. However, in Telegraf 1.12 there is this bug that capped the usage at 100.

Hi Daniel,

thanks a lot! :slight_smile:
