Reading the Graph

The following table describes the statistics shown for both the graph and CSV file:

Graph value CSV column Description
(x axis) Time stamp The system load's statistics are recorded every 10 seconds. Statistics older than an hour are then averaged down to hourly records.
In the CSV file, the records are sorted from oldest to newest.
CPU CPU Usage % CPU usage refers to your computer’s processor and how much work it's doing.
A high reading means your computer is running at the maximum level or above normal level for the number of applications running.
Memory Memory Usage % Percentage of memory used to run the processes on the Master Server.
Disk Disk Usage % Percentage of disk space that is currently in use on the Master Server.
I/O Disk I/O % Any operation, program, or device that transfers data to or from a computer.
Typical I/O devices are printers, harddisks, keyboards and mouses.
