Can someone explain the relevance of the data on this page of WHM?

The CPU% column - is this the average CPU usage for the User over the day (in the attached example .13%)?

Under the Domain column, there are additional rows for each user which are called "Top Process" where the domain column contains something like

%CPU 21.3

and under the column entitled %CPU there might be something like

spamd child

In the above example, does this mean that the spamd process took up 21.3% of the users daily CPU usage of .13% (i.e. spamd actually used .028% of the CPU daily)???

Documentation is so vague for WHM.

The percentages you see are all of overall CPU usage.

OK, sorry for the long delay...

The only problem with your answer is that they add up to more than 100%... Are they peak values, or quotients?
