Splunk Addon Unix and Linux high iostat values

Path Finder


i am trying out the unix and linux addon on my linux machines. 

I enabled the iostat_metric monitor an see high io values. Often about 100 till 2000 iops. But thats wrong. Its  test machine and also vcenter monitoring shows only 1-5 iops and after enabling collectd monitoring, collectd also shows low iops. 

If i run the script manually, it shows also some time those high iops. Running iostat manually, the iops are low and right.

Is there a known bug in parsing the output from iostat? Does someknow see same behavior.
