- update to 2.4.0
  New program atopconvert:
  + This program can be used to convert the layout of older raw files 
    to newer raw files. Raw files from atop 2.0 onwards can be 
    converted to the newest version (now: 2.4).
  Modifications for atop:
  + Support for Nvidia GPU statistics
  + Support for Infiniband statistics
  + Support for Pressure Stall Information (PSI)
  + Faster startup of atop
  + Configurable options for atop running in the background
  + CPU Instructions Per Cycle (IPC)
  + Support for Docker containers
  Various improvements:
  + Improved gathering of process data
  + Improved memory figures for processes
  + Variable width for PID column
  + Better handling when started via sudo (not entering stopped state).
  + Handling of disk drives starting with 'xvd...'.
  + Various NFS counters corrected.
  + Recognition of nvme and nbd disks.
  + Recognition of DEADLINE scheduling policy.
  + Proper handling of memory locking (improper handling caused malloc 
    failures in previous versions)
  Modifications for atopacct:
  + Better error handling of Netlink interface.
  + Immediate reaction when receiving SIGTERM signal.
  + Bypass for kernel bug 190711 (Netlink interface not available).
  + Bypass for kernel bug 190271 (process accounting does not always start).
  Modifications for atopsar:
  + Top-3 of resource consuming processes only shows active processes now.
- atop.daily has been moved to /usr/share/atop: using symlink pointing 
  to /etc/atop/ now to stay compatible
- new service: atopgpu.service
- remove -fstack-protector from optflags: not needed any longer
- renamed atop-makefile.patch to atop-2.4.0-fix_makefile.patch and 
  ajust to the new version (rebase)
- own /etc/cron.d (as this is not part of filesystem any longer)
- use license macro

- sysv: pm-utils/sleep.d/45atoppm instead of
- removed conditional suse_version:1 on "BuildRequires: update-desktop-files".
  We'd have to use this on every "Recommends", too, to enable building on
  non-SUSE systems. I think it's better to have the package "unresolvable"
  instead of having a build start and fail because of incompatible RPM tags.

- update to 2.2-3:
  * Modifications for atop:
    * New keys for process selection:
      '/' to select processes containing a particular search string in the command line arguments.
      'I' to select processes running with particular PIDs.
    * New counters for NFS activity:
      On system level, counters are maintained about NFS traffic. Three new labels are introduced for this purpose:
        'NFS' for NFS server statistics (overall).
        'NFC' for NFS client statistics (overall).
        'NFM' for NFS client statistics per mounted NFS filesystem (so multiple lines possible).
    * New counters for OpenVZ containers:
      CPU consumption and memory occupation are shown per container on system level (label 'CON').
      Container ID and virtual PID are shown on process level (when using key 'v' or 's').
    * Bug fixes:
      The maximum transfer rate larger than 1 Gbit for ethernet interfaces is now correctly shown.
      The maximum transfer rate for wifi connections is now shown.
      For interfaces in general, the maximum transfer rate is shown as a separate column ('sp').
    * Counters about virtual disk type 'xvd[a-z]' are shown.
    * Several minor bugs have been solved.

  * Modifications for atopacct:
    Avoid that process accounting is reactivated too frequently (and unnecessary).

  * Modifications for atopsar:
    Add flags for NFS traffic ('-n' for NFS mounts, '-j' for overall NFS client activity and '-J' for overall NFS server activity).

  * General:
    Support for systemd-based distributions has been added.
    The format of the raw file is incompatible with earlier versions. However, the earlier version of atop is automatically activated when accessing an older raw file.

- Spec cleanup

Sat Mar 18 01:09:15 UTC 2017 -

- Added Requires(pre): %insserv_prereq

Sat Oct 18 12:40:40 UTC 2014 -

- update to 2.1:
  * OpenVZ support: virtual environment identifier per process (envID)
  * Bug solution: when the screen-width is larger than the total number of
    columns to be printed, empty columns are added, however one column too many
  * Removed useless empty column for memory statistics
  * Introduce the 'G' key to suppress showing/accumulating exited processes
    in the output
  * Support CPU frequencies for systems with Intel P-state driver
  * Introduction of new daemon atopacctd. This daemon switches on process
    accounting and transfers every accounting record to an accounting shadow
    file. The source accounting file will regularly be truncated, while the
    shadow files are written with a limited size in a queued way. Non-used
    shadow files are deleted regularly.
  * Bug-solution: segmentation fault when one of the process names in the
    system contains a newline
  * Introduce configurable colors: in the atoprc file, colors can be defined
    for information messages (default green), threads (default yellow), almost
    critical resources (default cyan) and critical resources (default red).
  * Limit the names of network interfaces to six characters max
  * Introduction of proportional memory size (PSIZE) per process. For the
    resident memory parts used by a process that are shared with other
    processes, only a proportional part (shared memory part divided by the
    number of sharers) is accounted to the process. Since the gathering of this
    value is rather time-consuming (reading the smaps file of every process),
    it is optional ('R' key or '-R' flag).
  * Increased number of LVMs and disks supported
  * Support for huge pages (total and in use).

Thu Jul 26 07:48:55 UTC 2012 -

- update to 1.27-3:
  * service file for systemd
  * solved division-by-zero when maxfreq=0 and more precise coloring of
    concerning CPU-values when CPU overloaded
  * if setuid-root is set for atop, root-privileges are regained when reading
    /proc/pid/io (nowadays only readable for root) to obtain the disk stats per
  * added EMC Power device recognition
  * better recognition of version of process accounting file
  * improved error handling when not enough columns or lines
  * suppress sorting of system resources by key F or flag -F (toggle)
  * create unique /tmp name for decompressed raw file
  * numerous cosmetic changes and man-page updates
  * improved screen handling
  * limited maximum file-size for process accounting file (200 MiB)
  * improved handling of process accounting
  * new key 'S' to make selections of system resources like logical volumes,
    disks and network interfaces (regular expression)
  * use of arrow-keys and PgUp/PgDown for vertical scroll
  * use of -> and <- keys for horizontal scroll of command line
  * support statistics for virtio disks (vd*)
  * fetching and displaying of individual threads
  * add various details about the memory usage of processes, like stack size,
    data size, shared library size and size used on swap
  * show new value about swap space usage per process
  * colors are shown now for separate system-level counters instead of for the
    entire line with counters
  * enhanced security: improved dropping of root privileges

- update to 1.26:
  * an additional value is shown for the current frequency and the current
    scaling percentage of the CPU
  * additional system-level counters are shown for the total number of threads
    that are running, sleeping interruptible, and sleeping uninterruptible
  * when the number of lines in a window is too small for the amount of
    system-level lines, the number of variable resources (like disks,
    interfaces, etc.) is limited automatically to be able to continue
  * the signal SIGUSR2 can be sent to atop to take one more sample and
    terminate (e.g. used to speed up suspend/hibernate)
  * support for the disk type 'mmcblk'

    process-level statistics
  * a system-wide configuration file was introduced for atop and
  * handling of log files was improved and additional counters are
