    IO Statistics Load

    I just checked my IO statistics and found that I have a large number of blocks bieng written to my two hard drives on my server.

    I'm suspecting this is the reason for also increased load on my server.

    Now I'm thinking either 1) A site on my server is generating this amount of usage

    or

    2) Possibly one or both of my hard drives are failing?

    Can anyone help me find out what is bieng written to the hard drives at a high rate?

    You can use the iostat, mpstat and sar command to get details.

    To display the top 10 CPU users on the server, use the command below.

    Code:
    ps -eo pcpu,pid,user,args | sort -k 1 -r | head -10
