Re: To check the kernel table PROC utilisation

Hi Arun,

Use #sar -v 2 2 to see proc utilisation in real time. output will be like below.

11:36:44 text-sz ov proc-sz ov inod-sz ov file-sz ov
11:36:46 N/A N/A 365/4096 0 2366/34816 0 5098/63498 0
11:36:48 N/A N/A 364/4096 0 2365/34816 0 5094/63498 0


look at the value proc-sz. First is current utilisation and the next one is defined value in kernel.

Best wishes,

Ganesh.

>what will be the command

Check the man page. By default it will show all of them. Then you can grep:
kcusage | grep proc

kcusgae -t gives the top 5 processes that r using that tunable also kcusage -h -d etc can give u the report on a timely basis for the system like when was what utilisation of which parameter.


rfer to manpages of kcusage also
