Description Brian G. Anderson 2005-08-25 19:32:17 EDT
From Bugzilla Helper:
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):

How reproducible:

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.

Additional info:

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
