I've bee looking into the possibility that my server is experiencing a lot of iowait issues. I've found a lot online about running the dd command. I am unable to run this conv:
[root@vps ~]# dd if=/dev/zero of=/tmp/test bs=64k count=16k conv=fdatasync dd: invalid conversion: `fdatasync' Try `dd --help' for more information.
I also tried without the conv and I don't get statistics like most of the postings I see from other people. Can someone explain why this is the case?
[root@vps ~]# dd if=/dev/zero of=/tmp/test bs=64k count=16k 16384+0 records in 16384+0 records out
