  •  03 Dec 2006 06:23

Release Notes: Support for iostat NFS statistics has been added.

  •  22 Oct 2006 09:04

Release Notes: Hotplug CPU support has been added to sar and mpstat. /sys is used to count the number of available processors. NLS has been updated (a Swedish translation has been added).

  •  16 Sep 2006 14:17

Release Notes: The sysconf() function is now used to get the size of a memory page. The time specified with sadf options -s and -e is now always considered as given in local time (sadf output is now really consistent with that of sar). A bug was fixed in the SREALLOC() macro which was causing sar to exit unexpectedly with this message: "realloc: Success". The guessing of when a stats title line has to be displayed by sar was improved.

  •  09 Jul 2006 06:55

Release Notes: The S_TIME_DEF_TIME environment variable was added for sar, sadc, and sadf. The sysconf() function is now used to get the number of clock ticks per second (HZ value) instead of using the kernel include file sys/param.h. The sysstat installation process was updated to use chkconfig if available.

  •  25 May 2006 04:34

Release Notes: The -P option can now be used with sar even on SMP machines where only one processor is available. A small bug inmpstat where explicitly specifying processor 0 ("-P 0") could lead to incorrect output on UP machines was fixed. A -D added option was added to sadf. This option displays the contents of a data file in a database-friendly format with a timestamp expressed in seconds from the epoch.

  •  23 Apr 2006 04:48

Release Notes: Incorrect NFS client and server statistics were fixed for sar. Sar can now display stats for newly created processes when option -x ALL or -X ALL is used. Iostat -x was displaying redundant information. It now displays the amount of data read from or written to devices in sectors, kilobytes, or megabytes, depending on the switch used. Isag was updated to keep up with the current sar version.

  •  22 Feb 2006 10:51

Release Notes: A new field has been added to sar: %steal.

  •  28 Nov 2005 06:18

Release Notes: A new field was added to mpstat and iostat: %steal. Sar was updated to take into account CPU steal time. An off-by-one error in ioc_conv which was corrupting device names on 64-bit architectures was fixed.

  •  25 Jun 2005 05:56

Release Notes: This release fixes a memory leak in ioconf parsing functions used by sar and iostat. sar now displays its statistics to STDOUT in addition to saving them into the file when the option -o has been entered on the commandline. sar now recalculates the number of system items (network interfaces, disks, serial lines, etc.) when a file rotation happens. sar -b works again when used without -d. Small have been made changes so sysstat can be compiled with gcc 4.0.1.

  •  15 May 2005 09:38

Release Notes: Additional fields were added to sar -y (TTY statistics). sar -d now only reports for used devices (devices with non-zero statistics). A bug that prevented iostat from displaying stats about devices that were unknown in the sysstat.ioconf file was fixed. iostat might display bogus sectors values when the corresponding kernel counters had overflown. This is now fixed. "sadf datafile -- -A" should also display individual interrupts if available in the datafile. A bug that prevented sar -x from displaying stats about a process if it was after the first 256 processes in the process list was fixed.
