changelog

procps is a package of utilities which includes ps, vmstat, top, w, skill, pmap snice, pgrep, pkill, free, sysctl, uptime, and kill.

These utilities report what is running, who is logged in, how long the system has been running, and what is using up memory.

They can be used to kill processes and change run-time kernel configuration values.

What's New in This Release:

This release fixes a pgrep/pkill crash, fixes "ps sm" for single-threaded apps, and fixes a problem with stale entries in the w program.
A buffer overflow was fixed. SCHED_BATCH is known to ps.
Terabytes of memory are supported.
Documentation for top's H option was written.
Time stolen from a virtual machine is displayed.
Some miscellaneous patches (which Linux vendors left in locked filing cabinets with "beware of the leopard" signs) were applied.
