Disk Activity Monitor

Disk Activity Monitor

Post by Kevin Carpent » Sat, 18 Mar 1995 05:26:48

Are there any utilities available that will monitor disk subsystem
activity?  I'm looking for a TOP like tool that displays number of
I/Os per second to each of my six disk, and perhaps page and swapping

Is the information even available in /proc anywhere?  /proc/stat
appears to have a fair amount of information, but I havn't stumbled
across any definition of what all the fields are.

If the information is available, and no utility exist, I would consider
writing one.

1. Hard disk activity monitor...

Does anyone know of any hard disk activity monitoring tool for Linux? I
know that for various other commercial platforms (Sun, AIX, etc)..
there's a tool that will show the read/write/seek activities on the hard
drives. Does such a thing exist for Linux?
