FTP/telnet find command

I dont know much about linux commands so excuse me if this seems a stupid question.
I logged on via telnet and was searching with find. I tried
Code:
find / -mmin -1

This created a list of 202 pages with 62 lines per page.

Does this mean that these 12000 files (approx) were changed in the previous minute?

Is that a lot of activity or just the standard background activity? Thanks.

-1 is right for things modified within the last minute. I get 10823 entries but they're mostly not real files just entries in the /proc and /sys virtual filesystems. Exclude those and you get a much more reasonable list.

Code:
humax# find / -mmin -1 | egrep -v '^/(sys|proc|dev)/'
