RE: [linux-lvm] sar/iostat statistics for LVM



	Tsk, tsk, replying to my own post...
	
	It looks like the /proc/stat entry controls what is visible to
sar/iostat, and this is handled by the kstat_read_proc sub in
fs/proc/proc_misc.c. For whatever reason, disk info is added by looping
major 0->DK_MAX_MAJOR which is defined to be 16, so 58 never gets checked.
Has anyone ever fiddled with this to get sar/iostat working with LVM? I'm
thinking about just adding a check for major 58. Maybe this would be a post
for linux-scsi/kernel...
