What Others Think

First. Show us some sample output. . Hmm... there's a lot I don't understand here. Note: I'm using pidstat v11.1.2 (Fedora 22). . Without an interval parameter, pidstat prints percentages based on ALL CPU activity SINCE BOOT. Is that what you meant? The description implies a snapshot. i.e. Which processes are using more than 10% right now. . Next. What's the sed for? There aren't any commas in my pidstat output (It took me a while to understand you're replacing a comma with a dot in the 4th column.) . What does 'seuil' stand for? Or is it a word in another language?
