I wanted to make use of byobu's "network" and "diskio" status fields, but I'm not sure if the following behaviour (#2) is normal, or buggy:

  1. When there is IO, the network and disk status numbers fluctuate and report as expected.

  2. When the IO stops, those numbers show the last set of numbers that were reported, indefinitely.

I was under the impression that #2 should have been "when the IO stops, and 3 seconds have elapsed, the network and diskio status numbers should disappear from the byobu status area" -- since byobu's manual states:

network - instantaneous upload/download bandwidth in [GMk]bps over the last 3 seconds; nothing is displayed if traffic is 0;

Can anyone shed some light on this mystery - is it working as it should, or is it a bug?

Yes, this was a bug present in Byobu versions prior to the 4.33 release, which fixed these.

You can install newer versions from the PPA using:

sudo apt-add-repository ppa:byobu/ppa
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install -f byobu
