Description of problem:
Statistics for a Compaq smart card 5304 is not being collected. When I cat
/proc/stat I do not have info after "disk io:"
The card shows up as device /dev/cciss/c0d0 and is in /proc/partitions, but
still shows up as blank under iostat (I can explicitly specify the device). isag
also has no stats to graph.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Type iostat
Actual Results: No devices show up under device, as well as no data. Cpu is there.
Expected Results: Data
specify "-x devicefile" will help.
(ex) iostat -x /dev/cciss/c0d0
This looks like a dup of the iostat cciss bug report against RHEL3.
The driver is not reporting in /proc.
If I understand the situation correctly, this can not be fixed in the
driver because upstream vetoed that approach. As a result, you put a
workaround in iostat for RHEL 3.
We don't necessarily need to go that far out of our way for this in AS
2.1, but I don't know all the pros/cons. What do you think?
Hi Tom - there's a partial workaround (device major 104 only) in
U4/U4. There's a full-blown solution being tested by JohnRay Fuller
at a number of customer sites.
Jared: does this fix you up?
Yes upgrading to the lastest sysstat rpm did the trick.
