            Bug ID: 194781
           Summary: iostat(8) man page incorrect for -w
           Product: Documentation
           Version: Latest
          Hardware: amd64
                OS: Any
            Status: Needs Triage
          Severity: Affects Some People
          Priority: ---
         Component: Documentation
          Assignee: freebsd-doc at FreeBSD.org
          Reporter: mwlucas at michaelwlucas.com

iostat(8) says:

     -w    Pause wait seconds between each display.  If no wait interval is
           specified, the default is 1 second.

iostat itself disagrees:

iostat -xw
iostat: option requires an argument -- w
usage: iostat [-CdhIKoTxz?] [-c count] [-M core] [-n devs] [-N system]
              [-t type,if,pass] [-w wait] [drives]

Suggest dropping the second sentence from the man page entry.
