Review Datastore workload for serial or random access

I believe IOStat can tell you if a VM access storage in a serial or random fashion but is there a why to see this from he datastore level. I am trying to see if a datastore has for example 75% random with 30% reads or 80%b serial with 90% writes

NO, there is no algorithm that eventually could detect this serial read vs random read.
