Thanks ! That was the info I was looking for.

21 is only necessary if you want to use the FAIL keyword.The others should work without set a FailAt level. On my OS3.1 system it seems to be that the default value is 10 and S-S doesn't leaves FailAt to other/child CLI/Shell processes.

Yeh, I was thinking about it in more of a best practice kind of way, already there for you if you make modifications to the s-s. But I admit it was just a guess.

There is also "bogo MIPS" as a benchmark.

and it is a bogus value

Quote:
BogoMips are Linus's own invention. The linux kernel version 0.99.11 (dated 11 July 1993) needed a timing loop (the time is too short and/or needs to be too exact for a non-busy-loop method of waiting), which must be calibrated to the processor speed of the machine. Hence, the kernel measures at boot time how fast a certain kind of busy loop runs on a computer. "Bogo" comes from "bogus", i.e, something which is a fake. Hence, the BogoMips value gives some indication of the processor speed, but it is way too unscientific to be called anything but BogoMips.

AFAIK it is the same as certain slow RAM or "Ranger" RAM from C00000-D7FFFF
