    Hello Arun,

    From my understanding, these are the following:

    us = user CPU time
    sy = system/kernel CPU time
    ni = nice processs CPU time
    id = idle CPU time
    wa = I/O wait CPU time
    hi = hardware interrupts
    si = software interrupts
    st = steal time (time in involuntary wait by the virtual CPU while servicing another processor)

    Thanks.
