Where can I find a comprehensive explanation for the output of mpstat on AIX?
Specifically, when running "mpstat -i 3" what is the meaning of "mpcs, mpcr, dev, soft, dec" values if they are high? And by high I mean that the second I start running a certain script the values go up to more than a few thousands on the first 2 fields (mpcs & mpcr)
On the mpstat man page it says that mpcs is mpc send interrupts & mpcr is mpc received interrupts but as for mpc it's just says: Total number of inter-processor calls
