DragonFly kernel List (threaded) for 2003-09
Re: ps (process status) vs ts (thread status)
:item of interest. On multiprocessors, there are
:as many separate thread queues as processors.
:Is this observation going to remain true
:as development proceeds?
Yes. It is a core concept that we intend the entire system depends on.
:If that is so, then a tool to report threads
:would be more useful than the process status tool.
:(the process status tool is incorrect in that processor 0 thread
:activity is reported some time and processor 1 thread activity
:is reported other times.)
:The entries for processes appear to be correct
:in both outputs.
Yes, I've noticed that too :-)
Someone just needs to go in and fix the sysctl to scan all the cpus
instead of just the current one. I don't think we need a separate
program to do it.
