On the VAX, this has worked fine in the past. On the Alpha this works fine with 5.0 as well. However, on the VAX, I can observe a few very peculiar things. systat normally do a screen update every five seconds. On the VAX, when build.sh is running, I have observed as much as a minute and a half between screen updates. It seems related to how busy the machine is with the current command. When make comes to libc, it takes about a minute and a half to suck in and process all the dependencies, and nothing happens in systat during this. Another thing is that the interrupt counters are weird. I can run a ping towards the VAX during this, and response times are fine the whole time. However, the interrupt counters in systat don't report any interrupts. They probably do show up later, but there is some kind of delay going on here. I have no idea exactly how this all works out, but I find it strange.

I'm finally running the snapshot from friday, compiling CVS from saturday noon. "systat vmstat" gets redrawn every five second, and the interrupt counter is working also.

Hope it helps ...

It don't. :-)
Maybe it is something with some specific code for some hardware. What machine are you running on?
