Dear freshmeat.net subscriber,
godard just announced version 9.1.7 of sysstat on freshmeat.net.
The changes are as follows:
sar now tells sadc to read only the necessary groups of activities. New metrics
have been added to sar (number of tasks waiting for I/O to complete, and amount
of active and inactive memory). nfsiostat now takes into account the
POSIXLY_CORRECT environment variable. sar and iostat no longer assume that
device-mapper major number is 253 (it gets the real number from the
The sysstat package contains the sar, sadf, iostat, nfsiostat, cifsiostat,
mpstat, and pidstat commands for Linux. The sar command collects and reports
system activity information. The statistics reported by sar concern I/O transfer
rates, paging activity, process-related activites, interrupts, network activity,
memory and swap space utilization, CPU utilization, kernel activities, and TTY
statistics, among others. The sadf command may be used to display data collected
by sar in various formats. The iostat command reports CPU statistics and I/O
statistics for tty devices and disks. The pidstat command reports statistics for
Linux processes. The mpstat command reports global and per-processor statistics.
The nfsiostat command reports I/O statistics for network filesystems. The
cifsiostat command reports I/O statistics for CIFS filesystems.
