Determine which device to monitor in /proc/diskstats
/proc/diskstats for 2.6 kernels displays the number of sectors written to a sd? device. I never have more than 1 flash drive thus sdc1 and sdc are shown then sdd & sdd1, etc.
Is sdX a summation of all sdX# drives? From what I have seen so far they are nearly mirrors of each other tho some items are way different.
Can someone explain the purpose for the pairing?
Which one represents the true number of sectors written?
It would seem that sdX# would be representing the flash drive.
