Subject units in MDL and HICC
Date Fri, 22 May 2009 05:06:29 GMT
Howdy all.

So I've noticed something.  The default mdl.xml has entries for
memused, and kbkached.
My version of sar outputs kbcached, and *kb*memused.    So memused
doesn't display right.

In general though, I've gotten worried about units.
if I stick 1000 * kbmemused in mdl.xml, will that get pasted into a
SQL command and will the right thing happen?
Is there a better way to do unit conversion, other than hacking the Java?

Is there any way to know what the right units are, actually?
