Versatile resource statistics tool

Dstat is a versatile replacement for vmstat, iostat, netstat, and ifstat. Dstat overcomes some of their limitations and adds some extra features, more counters and flexibility. Dstat is handy for monitoring systems during performance tuning tests, benchmarks or troubleshooting.

Dstat allows you to view all of your system resources in real-time, you can, e.g., compare disk utilization in combination with interrupts from your IDE controller, or compare the network bandwidth numbers directly with the disk throughput (in the same interval).


Install the latest version of dstat as follows:

guix install dstat

Or install a particular version:

guix install dstat@0.7.4

You can also install packages in augmented, pure or containerized environments for development or simply to try them out without polluting your user profile. See the guix shell documentation for more information.
