Hi all,

The HBA device file inside /proc/scsi/qla2xxx directory shows a huge number of interrupts.

please refer the below contents

QLogic PCI to Fibre Channel Host Adapter for QLA2312:

Total number of active commands = 1

in this file it shows "Total number of interrupts = 3872435739" . can anyone explain me what is meant by this interrupts?
