You can definitely run orcallator.cfg as a non-root user. For
orcallator.se, I don't recall which data you can't get while running
as non-root. You could try this [using csh syntax here]:
non-root% se -DWATCH_OS orcallator.se 5 |& tee 1
root% se -DWATCH_OS orcallator.se 5 |& tee 2
Run these commands until it prints something and then do Control-C.
Then to pull out the columns measured, run this:
% perl -wnle 'next unless /timestamp/; print join("\n", split)' 1 > 1s
% perl -wnle 'next unless /timestamp/; print join("\n", split)' 2 > 2s
% diff 1s 2s
This will show what data is missing. On my system, I get #proc/s
and #proc/p5s, which are the rate at which new processes are spawned.
If you want that data, then you'll need to run as root.
