Hi,

I am looking to get the disk information on my Suse Enterprise 11 SP2 box.

Here are things that I need:

1- Disk Read Operations per second (read IOP/Sec)
2- Disk Write Operation per second (Write IOP/Sec)
3- Average Block Size per second (Read and Write IOP size average per Second)
4- Read and Write Latency Per second.


I have looked at iostat command. It is wonderful but there is one issue. Its not easy to put the output into a file for later parsing.

Is there any suggestion that I could use?

Thanks

sysstat comes to mind..

that keeps a lot of statistics in files. I thinks it is worth a look.

Set up network logging only and:
sysctl vm.block_dump=1

It will dump all IO requests to remote syslog.

there were other ways to do it using a while loop but i had no clue that iostat allows an argument for time interval and with that i was able to redirect to a file
