SubjectRE: /proc/stat page in and out values
Date
There was a follow-on answer to this set of questions. Briefly, in
/proc/stat, there are two lines: page <in> <out> and swap <in> <out>. The
"page" values are in kilobytes and the "swap" values are in pages. *And*,
every byte in the "swap" values is double-counted in the "page" values as
well. So, to interpret these numbers, multiply the "page" values by 1024 and
the "swap" values by the page size in bytes. Then subtract the swap values
from the "page" values, and you'll have the number of bytes to and from swap
space and the number of bytes to and from everything else.

One other little note: later on in /proc/stat, there will be a line
containing entries for the individual disks. Those entries count operations,
reads, writes, read "blocks" and write "blocks". In these entries, a "block"
is 512 bytes.
