    The PATROL Knowledge Module for UNIX and Linux gives you the ability to monitor all disk drives mounted on a system. The DISK application monitors the disk drives that are mounted on a system for information such as

    • Average number of requests in the queue
    • Average service time
    • Number of blocks transferred per second
    • Percentage of time the device was busy servicing a transfer request
    • Number of kilobytes read from disk per second
    • Number of read and write pages per second
    • Number of disk transfers per second
    • Number of kilobytes written to disk per second

    By default, the DISK application class discovers and monitors all the disks mounted on the system. You use menu commands to select which drives are monitored and which are not.
