How to see IOWAIT in Linux

Hello ,

You can use sar command.

in Ubuntu you can install it with

sudo apt-get install systat


and enable data collecting

sed -i 's/ENABLED="false"/ENABLED="true"/' /etc/default/sysstat


start service with

 
/etc/init.d/sysstat start


To see I/O latency type command as

sar 1 1


that means it will give two responses with 1 sec as interval.

Example :

root@virt01:~# sar 1 3
Linux 3.19.0-42-generic (virt01.ubuntu.com)     13/02/16        _x86_64_        (1 CPU)
