I have a virtual machine hosted on HyperV. It is a SUSE Enterprise 12 OS residing in a rack somewhere in the dark side of our office. This machine is under-performing during a certain load that takes a few hours to complete. I could REXEC the CPU and RAM but couldn't see any anomalies. I am now looking into the possibility of an IO bottleneck and would like to poll the machine for disk reads/writes every 1 minute. However, it seems to have no "in the box" facilities to do that.
I looked up IOtop and IOstat and it looks like this is what I want but they are not recognized on this machine (not installed). When I did the recommended "zypper in iotop", the machine responded:
File '/content' not found on medium 'dir:///mnt'
That's where my linux knowledge ends. Tried to google it but could not find a way to install what I want.
Will very much appreciate your input here! P.S: I have full rights on that machine
