I am trying out the ne top options. The csv output is horribly scrambled:
Fo example:
[root@xxxxxxxxxxxx ~]# rm /tmp/collect_stats/dstat6_test
rm: remove regular file `/tmp/collect_stats/dstat6_test'? y

[root@xxxxxxxxxxxx~]# /usr/bin/dstat --noheaders --nocolor -t --top-bio --top-cpu-adv --top-oom --output /tmp/collect_stats/dstat6_test 1
----system---- ----most-expensive---- -------most-expensive-cpu-process------- --out-of-memory---
time | block i/o process |process pid cpu read write| kill score
