What is our present status on 'iostat', or a linprocps interface
to establish '/proc/diskstats' for GNU/kFreeBSD? Is there partial
implementation of the latter, or an initiated port from FreeBSD
for the former?
Seeing this in full light would help me, or a fellow among you all,
to plan some sort of work schedule. As was mentioned earlier the
prospects of upstream FreeBSD accepting an entry in linprocfs
As we all know, 'iostat' is part of 'sysstat' and it relies on
'/proc/diskstats' for data collection. An independent port of
'iostat' from FreeBSD would need a name change on our side,
or the incorporation of the generic name 'iostat' into the
alternate subsystem, which hardly seems desirable.
