Actually, no. It doesn't show up in cachemgr either. I always get the info
looking at 'top', never paid much attention under general runtime

Alright, Henrik, what versions of glibc do I need to avoid?

I'm interested in monitoring the value primarily as a watchdog to alert me
to trouble. I've got 640 megs in the machine, but if the cache ends up
seeing lots and lots of small objects, it can still get up there.

Also, thanks for that information on your page about filedescriptors on
Linux 2.2.x. Very useful information!
