If I remember correctly procfs is off by default for security reasons. > Would an unmounted /proc make the system run slower since > proc files allow for examination of the operation of the running > processes? procfs is for user land applications, the kernel obviously has other means to examine running processes. I doubt that mounting procfs (without using it) has any measurable effect on the system's performance, but if it does, I would assume that it decreases performance rather than increasing it. Fabian
