/proc/stat whats the meaning of the 10th col??


On an embedded system (kernal 2.6.21), when I cat /proc/stat I noticed there are 10 columns on the CPU. I google around but I am unable to find info. What are these values? Are the last 2 in addition to the orginal 8 (kernal 2.6.11)?

cpu 16118 0 9479 654 0 282 6 0 0 2

On a (non-imbedded, non-rt) system at 2.6.24 I get the nine fields as documented in "man proc".

after much googling I found that the last 2 values are user_rt and system_rt. Anyone know who these values play into computation of the CPU usage?
