Emulating a 'top' CPU summary using /proc/stat and MySQL

In my last blog post, I showed how we can get some raw performance information from /proc into the MySQL database using a LOAD DATA INFILE (LDI) command.

I've modified that LDI call slightly to set the `other` column to equal the sum total of the CPU counters for those rows which begin with 'cpu'.

original:
other = IF(@the_key like 'cpu%', NULL , @val1);

new:
other = IF(@the_key like 'cpu%', user + nice + system + idle + iowait + irq + softirq + steal + guest, @val1);


Top provides a useful output that looks something like the following:
