Beginning with NetWitness Suite 11.0, the Decoder provides CPU utilization statistics for all installed content, which you can use to reveal how much CPU time is used by parsers, feeds, application rules, and lexical scanning. The statistics are visible as Stat nodes in the service tree from the Explorer view when /decoder/parsers/config/detailed.stats is enabled and the Decoder is capturing the stats.
Each piece of content is accounted as a single percentage value (0-100) regardless of the number of parse threads running. The percentage represents an average of the CPU utilization for the content across all threads.
To enable usage statistics monitoring:
- Navigate to the Decoder Explorer view and select the /decoder/parsers/config/detailed.stats parameter.
- Change the value to enabled. If the Decoder is not capturing data, start capture.
When you open the Decoder Stats node in the Explorer view, the new statistic is visible.
