Hi all,

I set up metric server filing data into influxdb 2.

When looking at the VM CPU load directly in the summary I can see around 4% for my iobroker VM.
I the grafana dashboard I see then a value of 0.04% - a factor of 100 too low.

any idea how to correct?

same behavior for the CPU load of all other VMs and LXCs.

Maybe a 0 - 100% is handled as 0.0 - 1.0 like it is often the case when software needs to work with percentages? So a 0.04 means the same as a 4% with just the "%" being wrong for the 0.04?

that is obvious, and it looks like proxmox internally handles values 0-1 ay the metric server side and displays it as 0-100% in the VM or LXC charts.
If so, then I have to look to modify the data probably in Grafana to display the percentage correctly

Hi,
selecting in the grafana panel options dimension MISC. Percent 0.0 - 1 solved the issue
