Last modified: 2007-11-30 17:11:10 EST
Description of problem:
The proc(5) manpage has old description of /proc/stat file (it describes the 2.4
kernel version of /proc/stat). In 2.4, there is indeed a "^cpu " line with user,
system, nice, and idle times in jiffies. In 2.6, there are additional fields for
iowait, interrupt, and softirq times.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
This bug is fixed in the last version (man-pages-2.07-1).
