      Description

      The "run diskstats" function invokes iostat with only the -d option, which causes iostat to only show the I/O utilization averaged over the uptime of the machine. The -w option must be used in order to get the I/O utilization averaged over the specified period. We'll likely want to change the script to run iostat -d -w 5 and add some logic to suppress the I/O utilization averaged over the uptime of the machine.

      # OSX: Simulate the iostat timestamp.
      elif iostat -d > /dev/null 2>&1; then
          while [ 1 ]
          do
              date +'%m/%d/%Y %I:%M:%S %p' >> mongo-diskstats
              iostat -d >> mongo-diskstats
              printf "\n" >> mongo-diskstats
              sleep 5
          done
      


      The first statistics that are printed are averaged over the system uptime. To get information about the current activity, a suitable wait time should be specified, so that the subsequent sets of printed statistics will be averaged over that time.
