Disk Activity Monitoring

In order to add a disk activity counter, press the 'Add' button located on the main toolbar, selected the 'Disk Activity' counters category in the left-side view and then select an appropriate disk activity counter in the middle view. By default, SysGauge will monitor all disks installed in the computer, but if required, the user can select a specific disk to monitor in the right-side view. In addition, in order to monitor the disk activity in a remote computer via the network, press the 'Connect' button located in the bottom-left corner and specify the host name of the remote computer to monitor.

SysGauge Disk Activity Monitoring
  • Disk Space Usage - this counter measures the percentage of the used disk space.
  • Disk Free Space - this counter measures the amount of the free disk space.
  • Disk Activity - this counter measures the percentage of elapsed time that the selected disk drive was busy servicing read or write requests.
  • Disk Read Activity - this counter measures the percentage of elapsed time that the selected disk drive was busy servicing read requests.
  • Disk Write Activity - this counter measures the percentage of elapsed time that the selected disk drive was busy servicing write requests.
  • Disk Transfer Rate - this counter measures the disk data transfer rate in Megabytes to or from the disk during write or read operations.
  • Disk Read Transfer - this counter measures the disk data transfer rate in Megabytes from the disk during read operations.
  • Disk Write Transfer - this counter measures the disk data transfer rate in Megabytes to the disk during write operations.
  • Disk Transfer IOPS - this counter measures the rate of read and write operations per second (IOPS) on the selected disk.
  • Disk Read IOPS - this counter measures the rate of read operations per second (IOPS) on the selected disk.
  • Disk Write IOPS - this counter measures the rate of write operations per second (IOPS) on the selected disk.
  • Disk Split IOPS - this counter measures the rate at which I/Os to the disk were split into multiple I/Os. A split I/O may result from requesting data of a size that is too large to fit into a single I/O or that the disk is fragmented.
