This is most likely a stupid question and could be answered by an 8th grader but I just want to be sure.
Based on this technet article http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/magazine/2008.08.pulse.aspx?pr=blog I ran perfmon on our Windows Server 2003 SP2 and need help understanding the results.

According to the article for the PhysicalDisk\Avg. Disk sec/Read "If the number is larger than 25 milliseconds (ms), that means the disk system is experiencing latency when reading from the disk". My highest result is 0.20810588. Do I read that as 20 milliseconds......2 tenths of a second..... Is this result too high for Avg.Disk sec/Read? I should note this was the highest result by a lot. The average was .007

Any help would be appreciated
