    SubjectHZ question
    I need to know the kernels value of HZ in a userland app.

    getconf CLK_TCK
    hz = sysconf (_SC_CLK_TCK)

    both seem to return CLOCKS_PER_SEC which is defined as USER_HZ which is
    defined as 100.


    #ifdef __KERNEL__
    # define HZ 1000 /* Internal kernel timer frequency */
    # define USER_HZ 100 /* .. some user interfaces are in "ticks" */
    # define CLOCKS_PER_SEC (USER_HZ) /* like times() */

    Thanks in advance for any help
