Subjectdisks stats through /proc
I do not subscribe: please CC me at

I am trying to write a disks statistics / information module for moodss

I am having trouble gathering disks statistics: the only place I have
found so far is the /proc/stat file which, according to my understanding
will show data for up to 4 SCSI devices in priority, then up to 4 IDE
devices, and will never show statistics for more than 4 devices of any

What I would need is separate data (statistics, type, model, vendor,
...) for hda, hdb, ..., sda, sdb, ... devices, for example.

Is there a plan to improve the /proc filesystem in such a way, or am I
missing something (there might be another way to get at what I want)?

Any information from the experts in this field would be greatly

Many thanks in advance.
