Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 125621
no stats with sar -bd
Last modified: 2007-11-30 17:10:44 EST
Description of problem:i get all zeros with sar -d and mostly zeros with sar -b
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):sysstat-5.0.1-2
Steps to Reproduce:
1. sar -bd
2. see lots of zeros
Actual results:bunch of zeros
Expected results:valid stats
Additional info:i'm using lvm
The manpage states that sar -b only reports valid data on kernels
older than 2.5. FC2 has a 2.6 kernel so no stats will be produced.
On a personal system it is normal to see low values or zeros for stats
on most of your devices most of the time.
