This looks exactly like what is required, except ...

cn1:~ # ./nfs-iostat.py 2
Traceback (most recent call last):
File "./nfs-iostat.py", line 559, in ?
iostat_command(prog)
File "./nfs-iostat.py", line 464, in iostat_command
mountstats = parse_stats_file('/proc/self/mountstats')
File "./nfs-iostat.py", line 434, in parse_stats_file
f = file(filename)
IOError: [Errno 2] No such file or directory: '/proc/self/mountstats'

Which minimum kernel version is required for it?

Thank you!
