I am using topbeat to feed metrics to the server, however, I do not quite understand the meaning of those fields after reading the documentation.
For load.load1, it states that it is the number of jobs in run queue per minute. Does that mean the amount of application waiting in queue to be processed? And does that somehow reflect the latency?
For monitoring general CPU, DISK and memory (does it refers to RAM? ) usage, should I just take the field cpu.user_p, fs.used_p and mem,acxtual_used_p?
For response time, it states that it is the wall clock time it took to complete the transaction. What kind of transaction does it refers to?
