Good Morning All,

I haven't contacted the SE folk yet (still trying to figure out SE and
put together a little test script), but I did find something interesting ...

One of the example SE scripts, vmstat.se, does show the proper page
scan rate (/opt/RICH*/bin/se vmstat.se -- the "sr" column).  The
"vmstat.se" uses the "vmstat" structure rather than "p_vmstat".

The "vmstat" structure seems to work under both Solaris 2.5.1 and
2.6 (don't know about 7).

Does anyone out there know what the difference between the p_vmstat & vmstat
structures are and why p_vmstat is used over vmstat?
