Can anyone suggest a way to link disk utilization to a process?
I can see whether my disks are busy with systat -vmstat, but I don't know how to find out _which_ processes are causing the work.
You could enable kernel system accounting (please see sa(8) and friends). While this is not realtime it may be okay for debugging purposes. The accounting log provides the command name along with a number of readings, including the number of disk i/o operations. Please note that the accounting data is available for logging purposes only after the respective process terminated.
