How to Reset the iostat -E Error Counters Without Rebooting
Last updated on JULY 29, 2016
Applies to:Solaris Operating System - Version 10 3/05 and later
If iostat -E is reporting non zero values for errors, these values will not be reset to zero until system is rebooted.
In certain situations, it may be preferred that these parameters be reset to zero. For instance, after replacing a faulty disk the error counters for the faulty disk needs to be reset. This can be easily achieved in Solaris 10 and 11.
