I’ve downloaded and installed the Percona Linux template. I noticed the values for tx-drop had values of ‘m’ and ‘u’ and don’t quite understand why I’m getting values of micro and milli.
I was expecting reading to simply be the number of packet dropped at that point of time but it doesn’t appear so.
So I’m interpreting it as follows:
- A defined time period divided by the number of dropped packets. eg. 12.5m would mean 80 packets dropped within a second. 150u would mean 6666.67 packets dropped within a second (1/150u)
Is this interpretation of the reading correct? Thanks.
