Kibana stack monitoring: Normalized vs not-normalized CPU utilization

After compering CPU utilization in Kibana Stack monitoring and other tools my conclusion is that for default config:

  • Filebeat CPU utilization is not normalized, meaning for 4 cores the utilization goes from 0% to 400%
  • Elasticsearch CPU utilization on the other hand is normalized, i.e. for 4 cores it goes from 0% to 100%

Can someone confirm my assumption?
if this is default behavior, it's pretty confusing.

Hey, I suspect this post belongs in the beats group.
There you will get help from the relevant team members.


created separate posts for Elasticsearch and Filebeat
