Take your CPU load results and convert them into a dashboard to give yourself a live view of load across your systems.
- [Instructor] Now that you've got the CPU load…being indexed you should be all set…to start monitoring the load of your servers.…We'll head over to search and reporting…and search for source=cpu and hit enter.…Now if you scroll down here and click on all fields…it opens up this dialog.…We haven't actually used this before,…but there's some interesting things we can do here.…So we're gonna enable the CPU field…and the CPU load percent field…and close this dialog.…
What this does is add these fields to our search results…so that you don't have to parse through the logs…to actually figure out what they are.…Let's scroll back up to our search bar,…and we'll say cpu=all.…You'll notice now that all the events say all here,…whereas before some of them said zero or one.…These are the results from each machine…where it's averaging the load of all the CPUs,…not just one or the other.…
Now we'll need to graph this result,…so we'll add a pipe and say timechart…span equals one minute.…And then we want the average of our cpu_load_percent.…
