Disk utilization percentage & wait time


Hi,

Any idea how to view disk utilisation percentage in Red Hat ?
If Iam not wrong in Solaris it is "sar - d" ? What is the equivalent in RedHat?

Also, how to find out CPU wait time. In "top" it is part of idle but any way out to know wait only ?

Thanks in advance.

You could try
Code:
sar -d
Don't have RH, but that exists on SuSE (although the man page claims that it only exists for 2.4 kernels...it seems they were not entirely telling the truth).
