Note: this module is only compatible with Linux 2.4 kernels and therefore will eventually become obsolete. You are encouraged to use the diskstats module instead.

This is a view of the partitions and/or disks on a Linux machine, with statistics on read and write operations. It requires the per partition statistics in /proc/partitions feature to be enabled in the running kernel (that option is available with the 2.4.20 kernel version and above).

Note: see also the disks module for displaying more information on the disks themselves, and the mounts module to display the mounted file systems.

The initial table columns are:

By default, only the partition entries are displayed, but that can be tuned using the options below.

Module options:


$ moodss partitions --all
$ moodss partitions --disks
$ moodss partitions -r
$ moodss partitions -a -r ssh://
$ moodss partitions --remote
