disk reads at 10MB/s with no user activity at all

Hi,

As the title suggests I see (using sysstat) that our filer is busy reading from the disk with 10MB/s with no user activity at all.

I am attaching some more detailed performance stats and how they were gathered.

Can someone sched light on this?

There are snapmirrors configured but they are idle and there are no changes at the moment anyway.

Thanks.

Re: disk reads at 10MB/s with no user activity at all

According to support this is normal. "The only reason you would have 0 across all these fields is if the filer was turned off."

Even so, it is strange that sometimes it's really low (close to 0) and sometimes really high (I believe I saw values around 1GB/s)........
