Record Windows Resource Manager Disk information

Under administrative tools, or in the performance tab of task manager, there's a Resource Manager console tool. One of the tabs in the tool is "Disk" and you can watch and see files/paths that are high IO for reads, writes, response time, etc.

Does anyone know how to record this information so I can see the results over time? I realize I can watch reads and writes per disk using perfmon, but what about specific files?

Perfmon cannot track individual file usage.  It can, as you mentioned, track I/O for the drive as a whole.  You could record that, and you could turn on file auditing for that file to write the events to your System Log.  The combination would let you extrapolate the information you seem to be wanting.

I don't see reads and writes IO in the file audit settings. There must be some other way since resource monitor is clearly tracking this information and showing it to us real time.

No, the audit settings would be for file access (read, modify, delete), not for I/O for that particular file.  You could then look at the time stamps in your event log and correlate it with the overall I/O for your physical disk.  It will allow you to average over time, but never give an exact I/O for a single file.

thanks. I guess we'll have to find some other method then. I've posted in MSFT forums to see if that can help too.

not very specific, but I guess it's an answer. I'll have to come at this from a different angle.
