Bug Fix Advisory dstat bug fix update

Advisory: RHBA-2011:1450-1
Type: Bug Fix Advisory
Severity: N/A
Issued on: 2012-02-20
Last updated on: 2012-02-20
Affected Products: Red Hat Enterprise Linux (v. 5 server)
Red Hat Enterprise Linux Desktop (v. 5 client)

Details

An updated dstat package that fixes two bugs is now available for Red Hat
Enterprise Linux 5.

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.

This update fixes the following bugs:

* Prior to this update, the main Python script used the interpreter line
"#!/usr/bin/env python". As a result, an incorrect Python version could be used
during the execution. With this update, the interpreter line is changed and uses
the path /usr/bin/python. Now, the correct Python version is used. (BZ#521340)

* Prior to this update, dstat was exited unexpectedly when heavy input/output
(I/O) load was generated. This update modifies the code so that dstat continues
to report data as expected even under load. (BZ#709459)

All dstat users are advised to upgrade to this updated package, which fixes
these bugs.
