With dstat I can easily see my disk activity with the following option

   --disk-util

Open in new window


Is there a way to see the disk utility of an attached driver, for instance how can I get dstat to tell me the disk util of

/media/SAN113

Open in new window


Thanks

/media/SAN113 is a file system.

What are you trying to achieve? You can only use dstat works on a device. If you need to measure bandwidth, try iperf?
