Description of problem:
Does sysstat only show first four drives of systems???!!!
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. run syststat
Oops! I meant the /usr/bin/iostat command (part of sysstat-3.3.3)
Can you try 4.0.3-1 from the build trees (you may have to rebuild it) and see if
that helps? I don't have access to such HW.
"iostat -x" with a current version verified to do what you want :)
Not exactly. 4.0.1 does run, but iostat -x only lists the first 32 disk
"thing"s where "thing" is either the whole drive, or one of its partition. For
and so forth.
If there is only one partition, they are still listed, so like:
and so on.
But the list stops after 32 lines. I can however, run:
iostat -d -t -x /dev/sd[a-z] /dev/sdaa
on a box that has /dev/sda through /dev/sdaa.
The downside of this whole thing is that installing 4.0.1 breaks the cron jobs
from 3.3.3 on the 6.2 box. A proper 6.2 errata which deals with updating the
cron jobs and such would be a desireable fix.
An errata for 6.2 is very unlikely - we typically do those for security issues
and extremely broken packages. This isn't one of them. It works with current
releases, so the "CURRENTRELEASE" fix (with a 2.4 kernel) is correct closing.
