       cifsiostat - Report CIFS statistics.


       cifsiostat [ -h ] [ -k | -m ] [ -t ] [ -V ] [ --dec={ 0 | 1 | 2 } ] [ --human ] [ interval
       [ count ] ]


       The cifsiostat command displays  statistics  about  read  and  write  operations  on  CIFS

       The  interval  parameter  specifies the amount of time in seconds between each report. The
       first report contains statistics for the time since system startup (boot). Each subsequent
       report  contains  statistics  collected  during the interval since the previous report.  A
       report consists of a CIFS header row followed by  a  line  of  statistics  for  each  CIFS
       filesystem  that is mounted.  The count parameter can be specified in conjunction with the
       interval parameter. If the count parameter is specified, the value of count determines the
       number  of  reports  generated  at  interval  seconds  apart. If the interval parameter is
       specified  without  the  count  parameter,  the  cifsiostat  command   generates   reports


       The  CIFS  report  provides statistics for each mounted CIFS filesystem.  The report shows
       the following fields:

              This columns shows the mount point of the CIFS filesystem.

       rB/s (rkB/s, rMB/s)
              Indicate the average number of bytes (kilobytes, megabytes) read per second.

       wB/s (wkB/s, wMB/s)
              Indicate the average number of bytes (kilobytes, megabytes) written per second.

              Indicate the number of 'read' operations that were issued  to  the  filesystem  per

              Indicate  the  number  of 'write' operations that were issued to the filesystem per

              Indicate the number of open files per second.

              Indicate the number of closed files per second.

              Indicate the number of deleted files per second.


       --dec={ 0 | 1 | 2 }
              Specify the number of decimal places to use (0 to 2, default value is 2).

       -h     Make the CIFS report easier to read by a human.  --human is enabled implicitly with
              this option.

              Print  sizes  in human readable format (e.g. 1.0k, 1.2M, etc.)  The units displayed
              with this option supersede any other default units  (e.g.   kilobytes,  sectors...)
              associated with the metrics.

       -k     Display statistics in kilobytes per second.

       -m     Display statistics in megabytes per second.

       -t     Print  the  time  for each report displayed. The timestamp format may depend on the
              value of the S_TIME_FORMAT environment variable (see below).

       -V     Print version number then exit.


       The cifsiostat command takes into account the following environment variables:

              When this variable is set, display statistics in color on the  terminal.   Possible
              values for this variable are never, always or auto (the latter is the default).

              Note:  On  Debian  sysstems  the  colors  are  displayed  by default when output is
              connected to the terminal, even if this variable is not set (i.e. unset variable is
              treated as if it were set to auto).

              Please note that the color (being red, yellow, or some other color) used to display
              a value is not indicative of any kind of issue simply because of the color. It only
              indicates different ranges of values.

              Specify the colors and other attributes used to display statistics on the terminal.
              Its  value  is  a  colon-separated  list   of   capabilities   that   defaults   to
              I=32;22:N=34;1:Z=34;22.  Supported capabilities are:

              I=     SGR substring for filesystem names.

              N=     SGR substring for non-zero statistics values.

              Z=     SGR substring for zero values.

              If  this  variable  exists  and  its  value  is ISO then the current locale will be
              ignored when printing the date in the report header. The  cifsiostat  command  will
              use  the ISO 8601 format (YYYY-MM-DD) instead.  The timestamp displayed with option
              -t will also be compliant with ISO 8601 format.


       /proc filesystem must be mounted for cifsiostat to work.


       /proc/fs/cifs/Stats contains CIFS statistics.
