Blast from the past today: I tried to subscribe to a surfnet mailinglist and the response had this bit of information:
Summary of resource utilization
-------------------------------
 CPU time:        0.000 sec                Device I/O:       19
 Overhead CPU:    0.016 sec                Paging I/O:      143
 CPU model:         2-CPU 2.5GHz Xeon L5420 6M (2048M)
I remember these lines in status messages when I first got in touch with mailing lists and listservers in 1992. Back then LISTSERV mostly ran on mainframes where this type of information at the end of a job was normal. Messages from LISTSERV used to have as subject back then "Output of job .." suggesting real batch processing.
