Ever wondered how much disk i/o is taking place on your linux-based server (or workstation)?

Here are some commands:

iostat

The iostat makes a snapshot of each available physical volume, and shows the current reads and writes of the volumes.

dstat -dnyc -f 5

dstat is a more advanced code, and measures both disk i/o as well as network i/o in near realtime.
