Oops! I meant the /usr/bin/iostat command (part of sysstat-3.3.3)
Comment 2 Trond Eivind Glomsrxd 2002-02-28 17:46:46 EST
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.
Comment 3 Trond Eivind Glomsrxd 2002-02-28 18:01:39 EST
"iostat -x" with a current version verified to do what you want :)
Comment 4 Kambiz Aghaiepour 2002-02-28 23:34:53 EST
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.
Comment 5 Trond Eivind Glomsrxd 2002-03-01 10:29:27 EST
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.
