    What is util w 1/9 ("Change Loop Status")?

    When you make a selection under util w/1 to monitor a server, the display is usually static, that is, it displays the Status of each server/child one time; that's it. Changing the Loop Status to ON causes this display to be refreshed every second or so.

    The values of Loop are "ON" or "OFF". The usual value is OFF. You will see the Loop Status as the second line in the util w 1/9 screen:

    Loop is OFF

    When you toggle the status to "ON" and then select a server type to monitor, the screen you see will refresh every second or so.

    This could be of use in monitoring how quickly servers are going from "Busy for nn seconds" to "Free".
