How the LKP works

/linux/proc

The LKP /linux/proc implements, mostly in read-only mode, a subset of the files that Linux offers in its /proc. That is, /linux/proc contains only a partial implementation of a Linux /proc.

Files in /linux/proc offer a Linux-style view of all the processes on the system. All processes on an LKP-enabled system, both Linux and native UnixWare 7, live in the same ``namespace''. As a result of this, both UnixWare 7 and Linux processes are visible through both the UnixWare 7 /proc and the LKP /linux/proc.

Prior to Release 8.0.1, the /linux/proc filesystem was supported by the lxprocfs kernel module. With Release 8.0.1, the lxprocfs functionality has been merged into the procfs module, and the lxprocfs module has been removed. The /linux/proc filesystem is now mounted as a procfs filesystem with a new mount option (-olinux).
