Description Milos Malik 2009-05-04 05:44:05 EDT
Description of problem:
The NAME section of the man page says "btrace - verifies an output file produced by blkparse" which is not true, because btrace is a convenient script, which runs blktrace (as producer) and blkparse (as consumer), and does not verify the output of blkparse.

The SYNOPSIS section contains a redundant word "Usage:".

The EXAMPLE section talks about running blktrace, but it should talk about running btrace.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. see the NAME section of the man page
2. see the SYNOPSIS section of the man page
3. see the EXAMPLE section of the man page
