Description Andrew Hecox 2008-07-10 01:52:48 UTC
+++ This bug was initially created as a clone of Bug #454792 +++

The divider= option is not documented in kernel-parameters.txt or elsewhere in
RHEL5's kernel docs. It should be. KB is here:


suggested text would be something like:

divider=           divide kernel HZ rate by given value.
