    Release Notes: mpstat now uses a bitmap of char instead of int to avoid endianness problems. As a consequence, mpstat should now work on PowerMac architectures. CPU activity as displayed by mpstat -P for a given processor was in a wrong range on SMP machines (e.g., 0-50% for a dual processor box). A missing bitmap initialization was fixed in mpstat.c, and updates were made to the configuration script and the FAQ.

    Release Notes: Average wait times and service times as displayed by iostat -x were wrong by a factor of 10. This is now fixed. Linux RESTART messages must now be in the interval specified by -s/-e options to be displayed by sar. A small bug has been fixed that affected the timestamp for RESTART messages displayed by sar -h when -t was used. Sar -H now displays its data in local time instead of UTC when -t is used. A Sargon shell script has been added.

    Release Notes: iostat is able to display I/O activity in kB/s with 2.4.x kernels (option -k), a fix for a typo in sar -W -h output, handling the case when some parameters in /proc/net/dev may overflow ULONG_MAX, sar -d displays sectors per second instead of blocks per second, a new FAQ, and NLS updates with a Russian translation.

    •  28 Jan 2002 15:28

    Release Notes: A new option -x to display statistics in kB/s, setting the umask in the sa1 shell script, various new sanity checks, fixes for potential segmentation faults that could happen with some locales, and an NLS update with a new Italian translation.

    •  06 Oct 2001 01:35

    Release Notes: Problems with CPU usage display on IA64 machines in iostat, mpstat, and sar have been fixed. Database friendly option ("-H") added to sar. Disk and network interface management improved (both may be registered dynamically). Options "-s" and "-e" now work when option "-h" is used. isag upgraded to version 1.17. isag installation is now optional and can be chosen at the config stage. Man pages are now installed in ${PREFIX}/share/man instead of ${PREFIX}/man. Norwegian translation added to NLS.

    •  01 Jul 2001 05:22

    Release Notes: This release includes fixes for files created by the sa2 shell script being world writable, updates to the shell script to only remove sa?? and sar?? files, replacing of PAGE_SHIFT with page size computing since it no longer exists in asm/page.h, and NLS updates including an Afrikaans translation.

    •  14 Apr 2001 04:38

    Release Notes: Better network interfaces handling -- now takes into account the fact that they may be registered/unregistered dynamically, changes to the formula used to display statistics in order to avoid overflow conditions, a fix for a bug in iostat where the %util value scaled incorrectly, better long filename management by iostat, mpstat and sar no longer periodically display the title line when stdout has been redirected to a pipe or a file, the shell script has been updated (now exec sadc), the configuration script has been updated, and the isag command improved.

    •  10 Mar 2001 05:39

    Release Notes: This release includes paging statistics (sar -B), load averages and queue length statistics (sar -q), per device statistics (sar -d), better accuracy when computing the average for some statistics, display of all the contents of a daily data file when the count parameter is not given on the command line, more aggressive checking of command line options, fixes so iostat no longer freezes if -c and -d options are used together, a fix for a bug that prevented iostat from displaying more than an average of three devices with 2.4 kernels, a check added to ensure that sar and sadc commands are consistent, and some isag command updates.

    •  14 Feb 2001 18:12

    Release Notes: An improved Iostat command which takes full advantage of an I/O accounting patch to display extended statistics (option -x). The default value for the count parameter of the sar command is now 1. A value of 0 will indicate that reports are to be generated continuously. The code is cleaner, and always uses 'double' numbers instead of the INT_PART, INT_VAL, DEC_PART, and DEC_VAL macros. Jiffies are not assumed to be 100ths of a second; the Linux HZ definition is used instead. NLS is updated, and a new Isag (Interactive System Activity Graph) command was added.

    •  03 Feb 2001 07:15

    Release Notes: This release fixes several bugs including duplicate counting of disk I/O statistics when reading /proc/stat with 2.4 kernels. Iostat is no longer able to save its data to a file, although now works with 2.4 kernels and can handle the format of the /proc/stat file for both 2.2 and 2.4 kernels. Sar now reports statistics on allocated disk quota entries instead of on used ones. The manual pages for sar and Iostat have also been updated.
