So here is a Linux question that's been nagging at me. Is there a simple (command line) way of identifying processes that are creating heavy disk i/o? I suppose I could wrap some shell script around sar, or poke around in /proc, but thought asking here might be more productive and fun. Any thoughts?
A secondary, less important, question is how to identify the file(s) being accessed.
