rstatd output - explain?
Posted on 1997-04-19
rstatd returns certain information about the system when queried via RPC calls. Perfmeter (on Suns) displays ten parameters (cpu, disk, swap, context, etc.) rstatd, however, returns four values for CPU and four for disk, which are wildly different. Anybody know what each of these values means, and how to scale the values returned to a fixed scale? I'm trying to write (extend) a Java applet I wrote so that it can be used as a quick reference to system performance, and I don't know how to deal with these values.
