So last week I screwed up in a royal fashion. I caused 1 core on 12,000 servers to be running at 100% with a zombie process. In conversation with a friend he asked “So how many BogoMIPS were you wasting?”, of course I had to find out.
So I grepped out the first core on each box’es BogoMIPS value and summed it up.
Per second: 61099300 BogoMIPS
If you take that figure and multiply it up for 12 hours.
Total: 2639489760000 Million Instructions
For more information on BogoMIPS please see this nice FAQ.
