This update for s390-tools fixes the following issue:

  • ziomon: fix utilization recording with multi-digit scsi hosts. (bsc#1163080) s390-tools-1.9.0 introduced a new way of recognizing of multipath device paths with using of sed command invocation in ziomon script. With this new way of recognizing, if there are paths, related to multipath device, with SCSI host ID longer, than one digit, ziomon incorrectly parses the multipath -l command output. It erroneously cuts off all but the least significant digit of the SCSI host ID (H) of paths in H:B:T:L format (Host:Bus:Target:Lun). This fix solve this issue.
