Doc Text:
Support for device-mapper statistics facility (`dmstats`) The Red Hat Enterprise Linux 6.8 release supports a device-mapper statistics facility, the `dmstats` program. The `dmstats` program displays and manages I/O statistics for user-defined regions of devices that use the device-mapper driver. The `dmstats` program provides a similar functionality to the `iostats` program, but at levels of finer granularity than a whole device. For information on the `dmstats` program, see the `dmstats`(8) man page.

Description Bryn M. Reeves 2015-09-30 11:23:59 EDT
+++ This bug was initially created as a clone of Bug #1222101 +++

Description of problem:
The kernel has supported configurable IO statistic for device-mapper devices since 3.11. Enabling and using them currently requires manual use of the device-mapper message facility and returns values in terms of diskstats-style counter sets.

Adding statistics support to libdevmapper and dmsetup would simplify configuration, inspection and management of device-mapper IO statistics and provide common mechanisms for use in other device-mapper applications like lvm2 and multipath-tools.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
lvm2-2.02.118.el6

How reproducible:
100%

Steps to Reproduce:
1. dmsetup --help

Actual results:
Np statistics commands.

Additional info:

dm-stats kernel interface: see Documentation/device-mapper/statistics.txt

--- Additional comment from Peter Rajnoha on 2015-08-10 03:57:42 EDT ---

New "dmstats" commands has been added in recent lvm2 v2.02.127 upstream which is going to be included in RHEL 7.2 device-mapper subpackage (device-mapper v 1.02.104, a subpackage of lvm2).

See also man dmstats(8) for more info on usage.
