Can anyone tell me if there's a handy little utility out there that will monitor and display the I/O charts for individual drives on windows?

On linux Gkrellm is great for this.

  • You might look into xperf, but writing a decent answer on this is outside my expertise since I barely ever actually use it. – Shinrai May 21 '11 at 15:52

What devices do you want to monitor?
There is a perfmon.exe out of the box from windows for system monitoring:

  • USB: Average Bytes /Transfer
  • Physical Disk: Average Disk Bytes/Transfer
  • Network Interface: Bytes Total/ sec
  • etc.

  • Thanks, I was familiar with perfmon.exe but hadn't realised it was able to moitor individual devices – barrymac May 25 '11 at 15:26
