- I can't find a way to get statistics about CPU usage
(user/sys/kernel times, etc.), i.e. what you get in /proc/stat
Don't recall of hand, but you could look at see what GNU uptime does
to get that info.
- I did not find a clean way to get the last running PID. That
would mean getting a task id from Mach (since our scheduler is
in Mach), and converting it to a proc_stat to get its pid, but
I don't think Mach has interfaces for the first step.
What do you mean by "the last running PID"?
- There are no interfaces for IP accounting. It's usually done at
the driver level, so you'd need to add an interface to Mach for
that - that should be simple since the code that fills the /proc
entry under Linux is already there.
Can't help you here.
- We can't get the "idle time" along with the uptime like in
/proc/uptime, but I'm not sure it matters anyway.
Once again, see GNU uptime. For the uptime you will need to use
something like fetch_boot_time (see the Hurd source code for that
function, somewhere in w.c).
