iotop on Debian Etch

One of my servers has a pretty high I/O load and I’m not quite sure where it’s coming from. Tried to install iotop but failed due to some missing dependencies. apt-get -t etch-backports python2.5 python2.5-minimal was not enough (and as you can see required backports packages) to have the deb package from lenny install,but actually just downloading the source package and running python2.5 iotop.py seems it would work.. if only I had compiled my kernel with io performance counters 🙁

    Try dstat also based on python but not that picky i think?

    Unfortunately dstat looks like a coloured output of iostat and some others but does not provide which process(es) are hogging the disk 🙁
