Total disk statistics include partition counters (double count) on kernel 2.6.25+
Last modified: 2008-12-24 13:48:12 EST
Description of problem:
Because of changes to the proc interface total disk counts include disk partitions counters, causing double counts in those numbers.
This is causing wrong numbers in a lot of use-cases.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
0.6.9 and older. A patch for this is in subversion.
Steps to Reproduce:
1. dstat -td -D total,sda,hda,sdb
dstat-0.6.8-2.fc10 has been submitted as an update for Fedora 10.
dstat-0.6.8-2.fc10 has been pushed to the Fedora 10 stable repository. If problems still persist, please make note of it in this bug report.
