User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:1.7.10) Gecko/20050720 Fedora/1.0.6-1.1.fc4 Firefox/1.0.6
Description of problem:
Enabling the harddisk readout in multiload-applet (system monitor applet) doesn't show any activity on many of my machines.
After some investigation I realize that the applet cannot monitor disk activity on LVM logical disks. This seems kind of odd since the installer for FC4 encourages LVM on fresh installs.
I see activity on disks not using LVM.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1.Configure a disk to use LVM logical volumes
2.Enable system monitor applet (multiload-applet) with harddisk graph
3.Start something with lots of disk activity to a logical volume
Actual Results: No data on appears on HD graph.
Expected Results: Graph of HD usage should show activity.
A process that uses a directly mounted ext3 disk will register activity
This report targets the FC3 or FC4 products, which have now been EOL'd.
Could you please check that it still applies to a current Fedora release, and
either update the target product or close it ?
This was fixed in FC5
