I'm running 7.0 on i386.
I'd like to see multiple cpu stats in vmstat.
procs memory page disk faults cpu
r b w avm fre flt re pi po fr sr ad0 in sy cs us sy id
0 0 0 398000 77144 7298 1 1 0 5686 12 0 117 18938 1758 32 11 58
The formatting got whacked, sorry.
I looked at several man pages and couldn't find any other stat program that
showed multiple processors.
I have a system monitor running under SuperKaramba, but on a Hyperthreaded
system, it shows both processors with identical CPU percentages. I had sent
a bug report to KDE, but the guy that picked it up couldn't understand my
point. Which is, since a hyperthreaded CPU is actually two pipelines sharing
a common execution unit, the "best" it could be doing is complementary
precents, i.e., if one CPU is 60% utilized, then the other CPU couldn't be
any better than 40 % utilized.
