Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 170044
sar -b non-functional: sysstat 6.0.x available
Last modified: 2010-10-21 23:29:42 EDT
Description of problem:
As described in the sar man page, "sar -b" does not work with the sysstat on
RHEL4. According to http://perso.wanadoo.fr/sebastien.godard/ this is fixed from
versions 5.1.3 onwards, and version 6.0.0 was released in May.
It would be nice if sysstat could be updated so that I can use sar -b again.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. sar -b
Disk I/O stats.
Just adding my voice to the request to have this done. Seems enough time has
passed since the release of the newer version that its time to have it in the
std RH releases/updates.
Any news on when the fixed version of sysstat will be released for RHEL4?
