Wasted BogoMIPS

Filed under: Geek,linux,work — Tags: , , , — dan @ 14:15

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.
