Release Notes: Option -[0-9]+ has been added to sar to show the data of that many days ago. iostat and sar have persistent device names support. A new option (-t) has been added to sadf: This option tells sadf to display the timestamps in the local time of the data file creator instead of UTC.
Release Notes: The options -g and -T have been added to iostat; these options enable the user to display statistics for groups of devices. sadc now overwrites its standard daily data file when this file is from a past month. The time format has been changed from HH-MM-SS to HH:MM:SS in the various reports displayed by sadf. A maxOccurs indicator for the timestamp element has been added in the XSD document. The option --enable-collect-all has been added to the configure script to tell sadc to collect all possible activities, including optional ones. A new translation file has been added for Croatian.
Release Notes: Virtual devices are no longer taken into account in sar -b results. iostat can now display target device information when a symbolic link is specified as a parameter. The option --disable-stripping has been added to the configure script. A Serbian translation has been added.
Release Notes: sadf has been modified to make it easier to add new report formats. The option "-P ON" has been added to mpstat, which tells mpstat to display stats only for online CPUs. pidstat displayed null statistics for processes that had terminated; this is now fixed.
Release Notes: A new option has been added to sar: it can now take a snapshot of all the USB devices currently plugged into the system. The option -h has been added to iostat to make the device utilization report easier to read with long device names. A bug has been fixed with cifsiostat that didn't count open files from the "Posix Open" column in the /proc/fs/cifs/Stats file. NLS has been updated: an Esperanto translation has been added.
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: sar now tells sadc to read only the necessary groups of activities. New metrics have been added to sar (number of tasks waiting for I/O to complete, and amount of active and inactive memory). nfsiostat now takes into account the POSIXLY_CORRECT environment variable. sar and iostat no longer assume that device-mapper major number is 253 (it gets the real number from the /proc/devices file).
Release Notes: New metrics have been added to sar and sadc: hugepages utilization statistics, and average CPU clock frequency. This version also includes bugfixes.
Release Notes: Voltage input statistics, together with some other metrics, have been added to sar's power management group of statistics. NLS has been updated. A Czech translation has been added.
