kthr    memory              page              faults              cpu

So is there any way to arrange columns correctly

Mod Comment changed the thread title - this is about vmstat apparently, not nmon

you can use "vmstat -w 5" for wide view

Can you clarify what you mean bi "incomprehensible". Is it just that columns don't line up properly - or do you not understand what the numbers mean?

Code:
vmstat -w 5
