What is actual?


(Michael Li Zhou) #1

there are lots of fields that are labeled with actual! What is the difference?

mem.actual_used?

From what I know "actual" means the "used" memory minus the memory used for disk caches and buffers. We could do a better job here with the docs, true.

Thanks for the feedback. I created already a PR to fix it: https://github.com/elastic/beats/pull/466
