SubjectRe: Admin util wish list
Good ones.  Your BSD examples led me to some others:

iostat BSDI,FreeBSD, like vmstat but for i/o. reports sectors/sec,
NetBSD disk transfers/sec and ms/seek as
well as tty io and cpu.
systat BSDI,FreeBSD Full screen system statistics display
NetBSD Various modes, the most interesting is
the vmstat mode. Looks a bit like the
output of procinfo but with way more
detail, displaying things like paging,
memory use, number of copys on write
zfod, and other kernel statistics that are
very handy to see when things going
u386mon SCO sort of a super top, with multiple pages
showing network statistics, kernel and
memory statistics and a top like
display of top cpu using processes.
-- My new ones. --
nfsstat BSD NFS statistics, all sorts of RPC
stats related to NFS. Maybe RPCstat?
iostat BSD terminal, disk, and cpu i/o stats
fstat BSD what files are open, by whom, and how.
This is another really neat one.
