Elasticsearch CPU utilization metrics are normalized by default

Can someone confirm that by using all default settings Elasticsearch CPU utilization metrics in Kibana stack monitoring are normalized, e.g. for 4 CPUs the CPU utilization goes from 0% to 100%.

This question is just a first part from the original question: Kibana stack monitoring: Normalized vs not-normalized CPU utilization

Yes, that's correct.

If you want normalized cpu percentages from Metricbeat, you must configure it, like

- module: system
  metricsets: [cpu]
  cpu.metrics: [percentages, normalized_percentages]
