Bug Fix Advisory - RHBA-2004:336-06
Updated sysstat package

An updated sysstat package that fixes a problem displaying data on disks with 
high major device numbers is now available.

The sysstat package contains the iostat, mpstat, and sar utilities.  These 
utilities are used to gather information on system load and I/O utilization.

automated scripts are used to parse the output of iostat, they may need

All users of sysstat should upgrade to this updated package, which
