Iotop is a program with a top-like UI that shows which processes are performing the most I/O on a Linux system.
|Operating Systems||POSIX Linux|
Release Notes: This is mainly a fix for the busy looping bug on exit in certain situations. Install scripts now install to sbin/ instead of bin/. Releases are now GPG signed with key "4096R/4D23A27E 2013-05-26".
Release Notes: Iotop has been converted to Python 3 and is now installed in sbin instead of bin. The display is adapted to the maximum pid width. Both total and actual disk bandwidth are included in the summary.
Release Notes: The only fixes are cosmetic, including a better error message when missing root credentials.
Release Notes: The netlink message parsing code was fixed to accept alignment padding. UTF-8 output is now forced even if the locale is misconfigured. The semantic of the 'a' key was changed to show stats since iotop was started.
Release Notes: There is a workaround for an ncurses bug where UTF-8 strings are misprinted. Ioprio support for the armel and hppa architectures was added. A possible incompatibility with Linux 2.6.37 on 64-bit systems was fixed. Iotop does not crash anymore when the locale is incorrectly configured.
