top info


i'm now sucessfully running our mysql-server with debian
pure64 for two days :-). when running top the summary output
is something like this:

top - 17:53:43 up 2 days, 43 min,  1 user,  load average: 0.31, 0.77, 0.70
Tasks: 212 total,   1 running, 211 sleeping,   0 stopped,   0 zombie
 Cpu0 :  7.8% us,  4.9% sy,  0.0% ni, 68.6% id, 18.6% wa,  0.0% hi,  0.0% si
 Cpu1 :  9.0% us,  3.0% sy,  0.0% ni, 57.0% id, 31.0% wa,  0.0% hi,  0.0% si
Mem:   4068456k total,  4052936k used,    15520k free,    98372k buffers
Swap:  2077704k total,        0k used,  2077704k free,  2761232k cached
'us' means user, 'sy' means system, 'id' means idle, but what does 'ni','hi',
'si' and especially 'wa' mean? i see that most often 'wa' has relatively high

sry if this is may be offtopic, but i didn't my any answer on this anywhere.
not even in the top manuals... (or i'm blind *g*). could anyone give me
a hint on this? :)
