Journal: Interval Ticks verus Clock Cycles 1

Journal by lkaos

Well, I guess I'll use this journal to rant a bit...

HP-UX's documentation sucks. I was trying to figure out how to determine the time a process has spent context switching and I had to run around in circles to figure out that the interval ticks to clock ticks value was the correct conversion value to convert the interrupt/user/system cycles to clock ticks. Friggin stupid OS. pstat is such a horrible interface...
