Where is `dstat`? How can I install it?

While trying to do yay dstat I get this list:

Searching the Arch repos:

So where is it? How can I get it? Could it be that my mirrors are simply not having it?

For reference, I’ve ran this shortly after I finished Manjaro’s installtion:

sudo pacman-mirrors --fasttrack && sudo pacman -Syyu

So the US mirrors are definitely not on top of the list, in case that matters.

It also seems it has been sunset: So long and thanks for all the fish. · Issue #170 · dstat-real/dstat · GitHub

Oh well. Any adequate replacements?

I know about iostat, iotop, glances, btop, htop, btm… but I don’t know, the screenshots of dstat looked pretty sleek and informative, and often times sudo iotop was showing almost zero activity while stuff was actually happening (granted it’s happening only for bcachefs pools and not every time).

From the Readme:

Development of this project is taking place on the Dool fork

It is in the repos: pamac install dool

D’oh, I am sorry. I just figured I shouldn’t look at the README of an archived repo. Very rookie mistake, sorry.
