Hello

I suspect that I have something set up wrong as my main HDD seems to become intensely busy at random times. Usually the program I'm working with stalls during these times if it tries to read/write to disk.

So now I'm after something that would point out to me what process is responsible for the disk i/o. Ideally I'm looking for something that is like the top command albeit for disk i/o.

Also while at the subject is there anything to set up disk i/o priorities?
Something like what nice is for the CPU prioritizing.

All suggestions welcome
