Release Notes: This release fixes the bug that changed every "3" character in top's command-line display and data entry into a space. The %CPU values in top should be a bit more reliable now. RPM generation now works. The copyrights have been updated, as required by the GPL and LGPL.
Release Notes: sysctl has a -e option for the Red Hat 8.0 boot scripts, top has user selection, and WCHAN is generated from /proc/*/wchan files if you have a 2.5.xx kernel.
Release Notes: For users of top, many of the old keystrokes are back. That includes the ever-popular 'M' key. There's a B key to turn off bold now, and top can read old config files too. Now vmstat has the -s and -f switches commonly found on UNIX and BSD systems; -s provides a list of stats, and -f shows a count of how many tasks have been started on the system since boot. Most of the tools are faster now, especially top (by several times) and w (40% less time on the test system).
Release Notes: vmstat now takes advantage of Linux 2.5 features to avoid a lengthy process scan. A header fix was also made, and the active memory now prints correctly with the -a option.
Release Notes: vmstat which now shows the IO-wait time distinct from idle time when run on a recent 2.5 kernel. GNU make 3.79 can now be used to build the tools, and setting SHARED=0 can be used to disable the creation of shared libraries. A pmap command was added, and it is compatible with Sun's pmap. The speed of the top utility was increased by 4 to 10 percent.
Release Notes: The man pages have been cleaned up a bit. The vmstat bi and bo columns were mixed up on Linux 2.5.xx. The pgrep and pkill commands now have -o for selecting the oldest matching process. Super-wide displays won't crash top anymore. RPM generation should work better. The code has been cleaned up. Things ought to run a bit faster, but this hasn't been verified.
Release Notes: Linux 2.2.xx users won't get that annoying warning about an ELF note anymore. Other than that, this is an update for top. Now top is even faster, works on dumb terminals, won't mess the screen when you run Linux 2.5.xx, won't show IO-wait unless your kernel supports it, and shows correct CPU stats for cpu0 on an SMP system.
Release Notes: In this version, top takes 1/6 less CPU time than in the 3.0.2 release. It also runs on 64-bit hardware again, has a more normal man page, and won't crash when you have lots of processes. Once again, ps can sort. The install will actually install everything, and now lets you skip things you don't want. Memory corruption dating back to the procps-1.x.x days has been fixed. The library is compiled with -fpic again.
Release Notes: The top program was rewritten and now has color and windowing support. Linux kernels from 2.0.xx to 2.5.xx are supported, along with libc 5 or 6. The ps command is now twice as fast and has a new -F option, full SMP and real-time statistics, and a better output. Systems with lots of memory, User-mode Linux, SELinux, and large PIDs, UIDs, and uptimes are supported. The KOI8-R locale works, and a minimal.c is provided for embedded systems and boot disk designers.
Release Notes: This release integrates bugfixes and enhancements from all the vendor RPMs. It supports the new /proc layout (up to 2.5.39 or so), scheduler policy display in top and ps, understanding of threads, realtime priority and scheduling policy display for ps, and display of active and inactive memory statistics from 2.4 and 2.5 kernels in vmstat and top.
