Still bitching over how to "solve" the interactivity problems. People seem pretty happy with Con's latest patch, but I still prefer a solution without the interactivity estimator, such as Nick Piggin's. Oh well.
support seems to be almost there, if not there. I smell 2.6.0 soonish.procps
is out. Lots new -- this is a good release. New vmstat
(8), with an O(1)
algorithm, I/O wait support, unit selection, removal of the dumb "swapped" field, and oh-so-much cleaner code. Also new pmap
(1), with new features, Solaris-like formatting, and a GPL license (replacing a BSD-like license).
The future for procps looks good. Next up is cleaning up libproc severely. I have a series of patches to turn it into a Real Library.schedutils
is out. Small release: support for Alpha and PA-RISC and some cleanup.
