I am quite new to Linux.....
I have a query regarding vmstat and manipulation to be done on its output.
vmstat gives output that contains averages, calculated from the time the system was last booted.
vmstat 1 10 gives output displays one new line per second, but only for the next ten seconds
Now if I take output of both the command at an interval of 1 minutes,
vmstat gives one constant o/p., whereas, vmstat 1 10 gives variations in results as far as cpu time is concerned.
Is it possible to extract o/p of vmstat 1 10 and get avg of cpu usage for every one minute ?
Do I have to write my own code for this ?
If yes ... can someone of you give me a little start ? Or some ref. book or name of the site from where I can get little help ?
Thanks in advance....
