Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 111216
/usr/bin/top fails to show idletime etc...
Last modified: 2007-11-30 17:10:34 EST
Description of problem:
Running /usr/bin/top on a newly installes and updated Fedora Core 1
it fails to show proper summary values. The following line from the
CPU states: cpu user nice system irq softirq iowait
total 0.0% 0.0% 0.0% 33.3% 33.4% 33.2%
never shows user/nice/idle values. However, the irq/softirq/iowait
values switches between 0.0 and "1/3", as above, every time the
display is updated.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Fedora Core I, /usr/bin/top from the procps-2.0.17-1 RPM.
Happens every time...
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Simply run 'top'
Valid, thrustworth time values
Clearly bogus values
Forgot to mention my platform/configuration. I'm running Fedora on
an Intel P3/650Mhz ASUS laptop, 192Mb of memory. Nothing really
special about it - definitely not to make top fail like this...:-)
