New cpu values in /proc/stat?


Previous version of Linux had four cpu values in /proc/stat; user, nice, system and idle. Now I'm seeing either seven or eight values. Common sense would suggest that the first four values are the same as before. But, kernel_stat.h doesn't show the fourth value as idle yet that seems to be what it is from looking at the numbers. Anyone know what these values are or how to find out?

man proc

Do locate for stat - make sure the one you find is that one because there is a stat subheading under the process stuff as well. On my RedHat the correct "stat" heading is below the heading for "slabinfo" so doing locate for slabinfo may get you there quickly.
