Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 299751
"man proc" slightly outdated
Last modified: 2007-11-30 17:12:16 EST
Description of problem:
The proc(5) manpage doesn't describe the current /proc filesytem quite
/proc/stat contains 8 nubers on cpu<n> lines -- the additional one (named steal)
is the time spent servicing other DomU instances (virtual machines).
/proc/slabinfo exists no more. Additionally the slabinfo(5) manpage is useless.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. run "man proc" and compare the information to the reality
2. same thing with "man slabinfo"
3. cat /proc/slabinfo (no such file or directory)
4. cat /proc/stat (too many numbers on cpu lines)
I can't find out what to do with my slabtop program that is also broken. :(
I read man pages and know.
There may be some more bugs. If I find any, I'll add them here.
This problem will be fixed in the upstream version soon (man-pages-2.68).
