Program

sysdig_program_cpu_cores_used

Prometheus IDsysdig_program_cpu_cores_used
Legacy IDcpu.cores.used
Metric Typegauge
Unitnumber
DescriptionThe CPU core usage of each program is obtained from cgroups, and is equal to the number of cores used by the program. For example, if a program uses two of an available four cores, the value of sysdig_program_cpu_cores_used will be two.
Additional Notes

sysdig_program_cpu_cores_used_percent

Prometheus IDsysdig_program_cpu_cores_used_percent
Legacy IDcpu.cores.used.percent
Metric Typegauge
Unitpercent
DescriptionThe CPU core usage percent for each program is obtained from cgroups, and is equal to the number of cores multiplied by 100. For example, if a program uses three cores, the value of sysdig_program_cpu_cores_used_percent would be 300%.
Additional Notes

sysdig_program_cpu_used_percent

Prometheus IDsysdig_program_cpu_used_percent
Legacy IDcpu.used.percent
Metric Typegauge
Unitpercent
DescriptionThe CPU usage for each program is obtained from cgroups, and normalized by dividing by the number of cores to determine an overall percentage. For example, if the environment contains six cores on a host, and the processes are assigned two cores, Sysdig will report CPU usage of 2/6 * 100% = 33.33%. This metric is calculated differently for hosts and containers.
Additional Notes
