Linux System IO monitoring

Posted by hitchingupthetrailer on 2013/08/26

This one is for Linux geeks.

Was looking for something to show me io stats for the SSD on one of our servers. While I ran across dstat which produced a lot of nice data in very readable format

Then I ran across this site that discussed the topic and thought that I would share as it seems like a nice write up with decent examples/


Plus monitoring disk Io can be done by multiple tools like the following. So we have a lot of options to use.

  1. Iostat
  2. Iozone
  3. SAR
  4. vmstat
