 +The iostat utility displays kernel I/O statistics on terminal, device and cpu operations. ​ The first statistics that are printed are averaged over the system uptime. ​ To get information about the current activity, a suitable wait time should be specified, so that the subsequent sets of  printed statistics will be averaged over that time.
