Linux Counter: development over time

Linux Counter: development over time

Post by Harald T. Alvestra » Fri, 24 Mar 1995 21:24:29



Hi,
I just got a new statistic out of the Linux Counter: How many people
registered each month since the start.

Here it is - buggy or not:

Month  : New Chg

 9 1993:  335   26
10 1993: 3186  154
11 1993:  105   58
12 1993:  299  254
 1 1994:  351  168
 2 1994:  323  161
 3 1994:  318  203
 4 1994:  576  283
 5 1994:  316  126
 6 1994:  349  171
 7 1994:  275  125
 8 1994:  307  125
 9 1994:  370  142
10 1994:  625  234
11 1994:  475  216
12 1994:  937  136
 1 1995: 1302  128
 2 1995: 2162  170
 3 1995: 1458  147

At the moment, the total should be 14879.

As you can see, there was an initial SHARP burst of interest in October
1993, and after that, it has been more-or-less steadily increasing.

The Web pages came online in October 1994, I think, after being
created by Patrick in September; it certainly did no harm!
From the person report:

How they registered
===================
form       1851 (E-mail using a form)
simple     7894 (E-mail with subject line)
www        4331 (World Wide Web form)

February 1995 saw the hoopla of Linux 1.2 - this might have sent the
registrations booming.

Keep them coming - March ain't over yet!
Register to:

1. Reading the timestamp counter or other cycle counters on x86 Linux?

I need to time some code at the cycle level to check up on my pipelining.
If I remember right 'RDTSC' only works at 0-privilage level.  Is there a way
I can get this to work in Linux, or any other way of timing code to the
cycle in Linux?  I think I've heard of a way to do it on Alpha Linux, but
I'm on x86 Linux.

2. "Microsoft ports Windows Media to Linux"

3. performance counters 3.1 for 2.5.45 [2/4]: per-process counters

4. compiler questions

5. Apache and <!--#exec cgi="/cgi-bin/counter/counter.cgi" -->

6. Unix programming question - Strange time/ctime thing.

7. x86 performance counters driver 3.0-pre2 for 2.5.44: [3/4] per-process counters

8. GL in X?

9. Accessing Ultra's performace counters and TICK counter

10. serielle Com && Time Stamp Counter

11. time counter

12. Counter Time for Apache

13. Timing - is there a counter or somthing I can use?
