I have an interesting (to me at least) project I am working on for work. I
need to get disk usage stats out of a very stripped down purpose rebuilt
redhat linux distro. Does anyone have any insight on how/were iostat is
pulling its data? I cannot install new tools or I will have
my warranty voided on some rather expensive hardware, but I am allowed to
run my own scripts and add things to cron. A quick google
search didn't seem to turn up much on the inner workings of iostat so I was
hoping the infinite wisdom of trilug could get me going a bit further on
this little mini project I have been tasked.
