    It refers to wait time, so your server is doing a lot of I/O work, which means you might have some heavy database usage and could do with some optimization or a faster hdd.

    Hi,

    I have very few sites, with hardly any action, im on Servints Duece VPS hosting 90 domain of which 60~ are just holding pages

    They always say they dont see it high, but when in top it goes from 10% upto 50% all the time, today hitt 80% as I went on my site, I guess its that time to move

    Is there any software that could log this value so I can send them, I may even video it ;-)

    ServInt can probably install it for you by request.
