pagein

I've updated the pagein tool to compile with a recent valgrind version. The tarball also contains a .spec file. I had to work around a bug in valgrind in Fedora 16 and 17.



The tarball

(no subject)

The original plan was to have some program sI wrote to be added to the procps or util-linux package but the maintainers haven't been responsive. Therefore here they are in a package on their own.

I call the package putils (available from my private server) and the following programs are available so far:

plimit
Show or set the limits of a process
pfiles
Show information about the files open inside a process

These programs will be familiar to Solaris users. There are likely a few more programs to follow.
