>Description:
When I write a shell script plugin for munin, I hope get a current value of IO statistics. But iostat can't do it, it first statistics that are printed are avaraged over the system uptime. If I use "iostat -c 2 | tail -1 " command, this will wait 2s at least. 
so I think for iostat first line, 1) iostat should be display current value, 2) have a parameter to display current value at least. 

# iostat -c 5
      tty             ad2             cpu
