That's a busy disk...

From iostat -xnz 1 on my desktop:

r/s w/s kr/s kw/s wait actv wsvc_t asvc_t %w %b device
0.0 3.0 0.0 10.5 18444348816.8 18444348816.8 6148914691236.1 \
6148914691236.1 1844434881679 1844434881679 c1d0

Sorry if it wraps too much.

Of course, those numbers look very suspicious. I have seen this sort of silliness several times in iostat output recently though.

It may be helpful to pass -M to iostat so that it reports through put in megabytes. I know the latest version of Solaris 8 supports this so it should be in what ever version you are running.
