What is Iotop?

Linux has always been able to show how much I/O was going on (the bi and bo columns of the vmstat 1 command).

Iotop is a Python program with a top like UI used to show of behalf of which process is the I/O going on. It requires Python = 2.5 (or Python = 2.4 with the ctypes module) and a Linux kernel = 2.6.20 with the TASK_DELAY_ACCT CONFIG_TASKSTATS, TASK_IO_ACCOUNTING and CONFIG_VM_EVENT_COUNTERS options on.
