To find the task size for a 64-bit Linux kernel, you can use the following command:

1
getconf PAGE_SIZE | awk '{ print (2^12)*$1 }'


This command will show you the system's page size in bytes and then multiply it by 2^12 (which is the default number of pages per task) to calculate the task size in bytes.


Alternatively, you can run the following command that directly uses sysconf to get the value:

1
getconf _SC_TASK_SIZE


Executing either of these commands will provide you with the task size in bytes for your 64-bit Linux kernel.

It looks like there was a slight error in the command provided to calculate the task size for a 64-bit Linux kernel. Here is the corrected command:

1
getconf PAGE_SIZE | awk '{ print ($1)*(2^12) }'


Executing the corrected command or using the following command to directly get the task size value:

1
getconf _SC_TASK_SIZE


will accurately provide you with the task size in bytes for your 64-bit Linux kernel system.
