Description Amanulla 2005-04-06 16:28:50 UTC
Description of problem: On 2.4.21 based kernels, /proc/pid doesn't include the consolidated resource utilization of the threads it has created. On 2.4.21 based kernels /proc has got hidden directories which has got the thread related statistics. 1) /proc/pid reflects resource usage of the process 2) /proc/.pid (I Was referring to this as a thread ID). Kernel stores thread resource utilization under this directory. The resource utilization (say cpu utilization) statistics under /proc/pid doesn't include resource utilization of threads which that process has created. I have checked with 'firstname.lastname@example.org' group, they have replied that this is a vendor specific issue. I would like to know if this has been already fixed in later versions of the kernel. Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable): Linux 2.4.21-4.EL How reproducible: Run a multi threaded process and check CPU/memory/disk utilization of process and we can see that the statistics do not include the CPU/memory/disk utilization of the threads it has created. Steps to Reproduce: 1. Run a process which creates threads. 2. Check the resource utilization provided under /proc/pid 3. Statistics under /proc/pid doesn't reflect /proc/.<tid> Actual results: Statistics under /proc/pid don't include thread resource utilization of the threads it has created. Expected results: Statistics under /proc/pid should include thread resource utilization also. Additional info: Assume we have a process with pid = 1234 And this process creates two threads with thread IDs 1235 & 1236. We have three entries a) /proc/1234 b) /proc/.1235 c) /proc/.1236 The statistics under /proc/1234 don't include resource utilization of threads 1235 & 1236.
