    I'd like to see enough statistics out of the low level disk drivers to
    get a usable iostat. The information from iostat is vital, IMO, for
    managing a large server and being (roughly) able to predict when you are
    going to be over capacity before it happens. Linux's total reads and
    write's per disk just don't cut it. We need to know service time for
    writes, %busy, total reads and writes per second and amount read and
    written per second at the very least.

    Artificial Intelligence stands no chance against Natural Stupidity.
