+ AVX512_elapsed_ms:
+ ------------------
+ If AVX512 is supported on the machine, this entry shows the milliseconds
+ elapsed since the last time AVX512 usage was recorded. The recording
+ happens on a best effort basis when a task is scheduled out. This means
+ that the value depends on two factors:
+
+ 1) The time which the task spent on the CPU without being scheduled
+ out. With CPU isolation and a single runnable task this can take
+ several seconds.
+
+ 2) The time since the task was scheduled out last. Depending on the
+ reason for being scheduled out (time slice exhausted, syscall ...)
+ this can be arbitrary long time.
+
+ As a consequence the value cannot be considered precise and authoritative
+ information. The application which uses this information has to be aware
+ of the overall scenario on the system in order to determine whether a
+ task is a real AVX512 user or not.
+
+ A special value of '-1' indicates that no AVX512 usage was recorded, thus
+ the task is unlikely an AVX512 user, but depends on the workload and the
+ scheduling scenario, it also could be a false negative mentioned above.
