7.42. dstat

An updated dstat package that adds one enhancement is now available for Red Hat Enterprise Linux 6.
The dstat package provides a replacement for the vmstat, iostat, and netstat tools. The dstat tool can be used for performance tuning tests, benchmarks, and troubleshooting.


The dstat utility has been enhanced to support the use of symbolic links as its parameters. This allows users to dynamically specify the boot device name, which ensures that dstat displays correct information after hot plugs and similar operations.
Users of dstat are advised to upgrade to this updated package, which adds this enhancement.
