In the cpu_time table, what are the units of time reported for iowait? Is it ms? I can’t find any documentation on what the units are. I am specifically interested in RHEL 7 if the os makes a difference.

I'm no expert at all, but it looks like that table reads from
/proc/stat
, and some cursory googling leads me to believe that (interestingly enough) the units are in hundreths of a second. Reference: http://man7.org/linux/man-pages/man5/proc.5.html among others..

Thanks @blaedj ! I’ll do some digging as well on /proc/stat.
