What is confusing me now is the negative values in the response to the "vmstat -f" command :
# vmstat -f
3031208 forks, -433171143 pages, average= -142.90
Thx in advance

It says, ..."vmstat tries to present an average since boot on the first line. The
first line of vmstat output is utter garbage and must be discarded"
I was only running vmstat for a single count. When run with mutiple counts
the stats after the first line are reported accurately. ""
