Little Things Doth Crabby Make – Part XX – Man Pages Matter! Um, Still.

It’s been a while since I’ve posted a Little Things Doth Crabby Make entry so here it is, post number 20 in the series. This is short and sweet.

I was eyeing output from the iostat(1) command with the -xm options on a Fedora 17 host and noticed the column headings were weird. I was performing a SLOB data loading test and monitoring the progress. Here is what I saw:

If that looks all fine and dandy then please consider the man page:

#000000;" src="https://kevinclosson.files.wordpress.com/2017/07/capture1.png?w=500&h=236" alt="" width="500" height="236" srcset="https://kevinclosson.files.wordpress.com/2017/07/capture1.png?w=500&h=236 500w, https://kevinclosson.files.wordpress.com/2017/07/capture1.png?w=1000&h=472 1000w, https://kevinclosson.files.wordpress.com/2017/07/capture1.png?w=150&h=71 150w, https://kevinclosson.files.wordpress.com/2017/07/capture1.png?w=300&h=142 300w, https://kevinclosson.files.wordpress.com/2017/07/capture1.png?w=768&h=363 768w" sizes="(max-width: 500px) 100vw, 500px" />

OK, so that is petty, I know.  But, the series is called Little Things Doth Crabby Make after all. </p />
