iostat tells me there is writing to the hard disk going on (that and the blinky led on the front of the computer). lsof shows me what files are open, and which have been opened for writting, but doesn't tell me which are currently being written to (it's a long list). Anyone know how I would track down what process is responsible for the writes, preferably not too labour intensive?
