            Bug ID: 269097
           Summary: rctl(8) seems to include idle time in cputime
           Product: Base System
           Version: 13.1-RELEASE
          Hardware: Any
                OS: Any

I tried to use rctl_get_racct("jail:0", ...) to get metrics for the host but
cputime seems to include time spent in the idle process. On an idle machine
with 16 hardware threads, I ran this:

$ while true; do sudo rctl -u jail:0 | grep cputime; sleep 1; done

The cputime increases by 16 each time. I was expecting filter jail:0 to show
summary cputime metrics for the host plus jails but instead, it always shows
100% cpu usage. If this is intentional, it should probably be mentioned in the

I can probably work around by getting metrics for the idle proc and
