When i run top command, it prints as follows in third line
0.1%us 0.2%sy 0.1%sy 0.0%ni 99.5%id 0.1%wa 0.0%hi 0.0%si 0.0%st
i want to know what does the line mean ? thanks
Shows CPU utilization details. “0.1%us” user processes are using 0.1%; “0.2%sy” system processes are using 0.2%; “99.5%id” percentage of available cpu; “0.1%wa” time CPU is waiting for IO.
When first analyzing the Cpu(s) line in top look at the %id to see how much cpu is available. If %id is low then focus on %us, %sy, and %wa to determine what is using the CPU.
