Seems like a reasonable patch to include in upstream.
Those stats are very important for performance analysis. Zabbix agents out of the box don't collect enough info to troubleshoot performance.

Yes, these values are really important. I have updated the patch for 1.4.2.

Edit: patch updated 19.9.2007

Not only are these numbers important, but the current state can be considered buggy (at least for Linux). For example on a system with IDE disks the iowait state can take tens of percent.

This is a fantastic patch, we run large clusters of servers (ISP) for different uses (web,mail, mysql etc etc). IOWAIT is one of the BIGGEST factors we need to know when things slow down. To date (out of the box) only munin would graph this.

Alexei: Please PLEASE add this into the next version.

Is this in 1.4.3/4 or is a new patch required? Cheers

The patch is not integrated yet and can be applied without modification.

Same question here. Obviously the agent still doesn't report cpu idle times in 1.4.5 (at least for Solaris).
