My understanding of
wall_time
from
osquery_schedule
table is that it’s the unix time difference between the start and end of a query. However, does that imply it’s the difference of when the query was last executed? Further,
system_time
&
user_time
are both milliseconds and I would have to divide by
executions
to understand its performance profile?

Wall time is the period from the start of executing a query until the end, not last executed.
System and user time represent time scheduled on the CPU https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/CPU_time#Subdivision
