Symptoms

IOSTAT GIVES BOGUS PERFORMANCE NUMBERS

   

These are calculation errors and not a reflection of real statistics

The problem is being reported against c0t0d0s4 the values for c0t0d0 and c0 are just created as accumulation of stats from sub devices and slices.

But the actv value on c0t0d0s4 is invalid, 18 billion active commands is bogus
