Description of problem:
Statistics for a Compaq smart card 5304 is not being collected. When I cat
/proc/stat I do not have info after "disk io:"

The card shows up as device /dev/cciss/c0d0 and is in /proc/partitions, but
still shows up as blank under iostat (I can explicitly specify the device). isag
also has no stats to graph.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Type iostat


Actual Results:  No devices show up under device, as well as no data. Cpu is there.

Expected Results:  Data

Additional info:

specify "-x devicefile" will help. 
(ex)  iostat -x /dev/cciss/c0d0

Comment 2 Charlie Bennett 2004-09-23 19:24:15 UTC
This looks like a dup of the iostat cciss bug report against RHEL3.

The driver is not reporting in /proc.

Comment 4 Tom Coughlan 2004-11-01 18:09:00 UTC

If I understand the situation correctly, this can not be fixed in the
driver because upstream vetoed that approach.  As a result, you put a
workaround in iostat for RHEL 3.  

We don't necessarily need to go that far out of our way for this in AS
2.1, but I don't know all the pros/cons. What do you think?


Comment 5 Charlie Bennett 2004-11-01 22:11:10 UTC
Hi Tom -  there's a partial workaround (device major 104 only) in
U4/U4.  There's a full-blown solution being tested by JohnRay Fuller
at a number of customer sites.

Jared: does this fix you up?

Yes upgrading to the lastest sysstat rpm did the trick.
