A question for exprienced Unix Administrators
There are two Unix systems that I use that support over 100 people at any given time. On both of these sytems, it shows the admin idle for like 16 days. When I looked the admins processes, all it shows is them idiling at the shell. I asked someone on the one system why the admin idled. They told me "They are really busy, you just don't see it."
So the questions are...
1)How does the admin fake his idle time?
2)What is the purpose of faking the idle time?
