Looking at the recent zonestat arc case reminded me of something I've been meaning to ask for a while.
In the case, it says: > prstat polls /proc, and will not account for > cpu used by short-lived processes. and > Extended accounting must be used to > compute the cpu utilization because it will contain all data > associated with processes which have exited. And this is something that's been discussed before. Now, if you want to account for cpu utilization by children, why not use the pr_ctime member of the psinfo structure? As far as I understand it, that collects cpu for child processes that exit, so why can't that be used instead of monkeying about with extended accounting? What am I overlooking here? -- -Peter Tribble http://www.petertribble.co.uk/ - http://ptribble.blogspot.com/ _______________________________________________ zones-discuss mailing list email@example.com
