sysstat-8.1.8 - System performance tools for Linux



Hi all,

This is to announce that sysstat 8.1.8 has been released and is available for download.

This version adds support for IPv6-related protocols (IPv6, TCPv6, ICMPv6, UDPv6) and a bunch of new metrics for sar. Sysstat 8.1.8 also includes various fixes and improvements for iostat.

Sysstat 8.1.8 is available for download from my web page at:

The sysstat utilities are a collection of performance monitoring tools for Linux. These include sar, sadf, mpstat, iostat, pidstat and sa tools. Check out http://pagesperso-orange.fr/sebastien.godard/features.html

Enjoy!

Changes vs 8.1.7 are:
* IPv6 support added. A bunch of new metrics have been added to sar, enabling the user to display statistics for IPv6 protocol family (IPv6, ICMPv6, UDPv6 and network sockets).
* sadc updated: Option "-S IPV6" tells sadc to collect IPv6 statistics.
* sadf command updated to take into account IPv6 statistics.
* Options -S (for sadc), -P (for mpstat, sar and sadf), -p (for iostat and pidstat) and -n and -I (for sar) now accept a list of comma-separated arguments.
* [Ivana Varekova]: Make iostat display statistics for devices only (and not partitions) when not using its option -d. This was no longer possible with kernels 2.6.25 and later because iostat couldn't distinguish between devices and partitions any more.
* iostat's options -x and -p are no longer mutually exclusive: Extended statistics are now available even for partitions with recent kernels.
* iostat was unable to read stats from sysfs for devices who had a slash in their names (for example, iostat -p /dev/cciss/c0d0 didn't work properly before). This is now fixed.
* [Amir Rapson]: Fixed a bug in iostat where %CPU spent servicing hard and soft irq were counted twice. This bug was introduced in 8.1.5.
* DTD and XSD files updated.
* Manual pages updated.
* NLS updated. Maltese translation added.
