hi friends

i ve noticed that the procfs "virtual" filesystem has got 4 1k-blocks of memory:

Filesystem 1K-blocks Used Avail Capacity Mounted on
procfs 4 4 0 100% /proc

what are these 4 blocks? what is their meaning or function?

thanks in advance. bye

I don't have this kind of readins on my RH9 system.

none 0 0 0 - /proc

Are you asking for the meaning of used memory or the use of /proc?
