Among other (see a post of mine) I am trying to count and add the number of bytes read/written to a disk during a minute/hour/day/... on windows. According to the Physical Disk Object documentation from microsoft (http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/cc776376(WS.10).aspx) there is Avg. Disk Bytes/Read and Disk Reads/sec which by my understanding should multiply to the read bytes per second (on average). However, what I get is identical to Disk Bytes/sec which is explained by
Shows the rate, in incidents per second, at which bytes were transferred to or from the disk during write or read operations.
The crux is during ... operations which means actually the throughput as I understand it, and not the average.
In some other post (Tracking number of IOs to disk on Windows) the transfers/sec are mentioned, but as I understand it, this is not correct either?
Am I missing something here? Is there a way to measure what I want?
