CentOS: Iostat read/s and write/s statistics contains decimal
I use iostat to monitor disk utilization for CentOS servers via a periodical cron of iostat -x with time stamp.
Anyway, notice that the stats (read/second & write/second included) contains decimals.
Device: r/s w/s
sda 0.35 1.44
I was expecting the result to be a whole number. The man page does not seem to explain how iostat arrives at the decimaled value. Can anyone shed some light on this?
