device s/w h/w trn tot
sd7 0 1 0 1

Do you mean iostat -en? Anyway, this information is available to anyone who reads the man page:
Code:
 -e    Display device error  summary  statistics.  The  total
           errors, hard errors, soft errors, and transport errors
           are displayed.

-n: shows the device names in the descriptive format. (cxtxdx instead of sd0, so that we can actually see which disk has the errors).
-m: reports on filesystem mountpoints. I doubt if this will be much use with the '-e' switch.
