Release Notes: Several bugs have been fixed with the nfsiostat and cifsiostat commands. Sysstat's commands are no longer linked with the sensors library if it is not needed. iostat incorrectly mapped device-mapper IDs greater than 256: This is now fixed. NLS has been updated and an Ukrainian translation has been added.
Release Notes: A memory corruption bug was fixed in sadc. An implicit rule for libsyscom.a has been deleted in the Makefile to fix a problem with parallel execution. The sysstat.ioconf configuration file has been updated. NLS translations have been updated.
Release Notes: A crash with sar where a pointer was freed twice was fixed. NLS translations have been updated.
Release Notes: A bug that happened when sar tried to read a datafile created while a least one processor in a hotplug CPU system was disabled was fixed. Support for keeping sar logfiles for more than one month was improved. The new variable "conf_dir" now enables the user to specify a sysstat configuration directory (this variable is used by "configure"). The "--enable-compress-manpg" option was added to "configure" to enable the user to compress manual pages during installation. isag (Interactive System Activity Grapher) was improved.
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.
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.
Release Notes: "sar -x pid" and "sar -X pid" work again. sar had a longstanding bug that prevented -P from working properly if the machine had more than 32 processors. This is now fixed. A bug introduced in 4.1.2, which made some LINUX RESTART messages not be displayed by sar, has been fixed.
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.
