Description Karel Zak 2010-05-07 07:45:21 EDT
Description of problem:

The libblkid library is able to gather I/O limits (topology) of block devices. This feature is used in many utils (fdisk, parted, mkfs programs, ...). 

Unfortunately, there is not a command line util that directly exposes the blkid topology support, so it's difficult to debug issues with the topology support.
Comment 1 RHEL Product and Program Management 2010-05-07 08:58:36 EDT
This request was evaluated by Red Hat Product Management for inclusion in a Red
Hat Enterprise Linux major release.  Product Management has requested further
review of this request by Red Hat Engineering, for potential inclusion in a Red
Hat Enterprise Linux Major release.  This request is not yet committed for
inclusion.
Comment 2 Karel Zak 2010-05-21 10:46:39 EDT
The upstream decision is to add this functionality to blkid(8) rather than introduce a new command.
Comment 5 Miroslav Vadkerti 2010-09-22 08:16:15 EDT
