Subject: Help debugging filesystem activity?
Date: Mon, 11 Feb 2008 14:17:13 +0100 (CET)	[thread overview]
Message-ID: <> (raw)

My hard disk on my server is all the time readding and writing some files (I can see it with dstat). However I would like to know which files exactly are readden or written all the time. I know that each filesystem activity goes by the VFS (virtual filesystem).
Is it possible to see all current open files in the VFS?
For example with a command like:
$ cat /proc/fs/vfs/open_files
$ cat /proc/fs/vfs/reading_files
$ cat /proc/fs/vfs/writing_files

Is there a possibility? It should be on the VFS level to be independent of the used filesystem.

Best regards
