    SubjectQuery on kernel metrics available
    A competing OS vendor is claiming that the Linux kernel has no way to 
    measure the following:

    a. Time spent waiting for page faults in percent

    b. Total transfer time for each auxiliary memory in percent

    c. Time in percent when one or more tasks were blocked waiting for
    memory resources

    d. Time spent waiting for page faults in percent

    I was wondering if the claims were pure FUD or are measurements
    possible -- whether they are actually implemented or not is not
    important (at least at this stage). Apologies if the descriptions
    aren't very precise; OTOH that leaves us room to interpret the claims
    in a favourable (to us) manner :)

    TIA and regards,
