Hello Balbir Singh,

Sorry for late reply,

I do a performance test between netlink mode and ioctl mode,
monitor 1000 and 10000 sleep processes,
the netlink mode cost more time than ioctl mode, that is to say
ioctl mode can save some cpu resource and has a quickly reponse
especially when monitor lot of process.

proccess-count netlink ioctl
---------------------------------------------
1000 0.004446851 0.001553733
10000 0.047024986 0.023290664

you can get the test demo code from the following link
https://github.com/dublio/tools/tree/master/c/taskstat

Thanks
Weiping
