What's it waiting for? Aug. 24th, 2004 05:52 pm
Is there any way of finding out from the unix (ok, linux) command line whether processes are CPU-bound or disk-bound? Or which is the major cause of (uptime-style) load on a box?

man ps and see if any of options you can ask it to display are any good to you. I would find out myself, but the college is sadly lacking in Linux boxen.
