Submitted by dag on Thu, 2010/06/17 - 22:11

After a fair share of improvements and plugins, including plugins to monitor Dstat's own performance, it was time to get another release out of the door. Last week I updated the documentation and manpage, and this week Dstat 0.7.2 saw the light.

Here is a list of the most important features:

  • Added support for CCISS and KVM virtio block devices
  • Various new plugins:
    • --disk-tps: I/O transactions per seconde
    • --squid: squid statistics
    • --top-bio-adv: advanced block I/O stats
    • --top-cpu-adv: advanced CPU stats
    • --top-io-adv: advanced I/O stats
    • --top-int: top interrupt
  • Best effort /proc integer overflow handling
  • Documentation improvements
  • Dstat performance improvements and plugins
    • --dstat-cpu: Dstat's CPU stats
    • --dstat-ctxt: Dstat's context switches
    • --dstat-mem: Dstat's memory usage
