Does IOMeter come with a command line version, the screenshots suggest it is a GUI application.

comment How would the outside world access my machine?
The key point is open a port on the Internet side of your router in the NAT settings area and redirect that to the 8125 port on your PC on the LAN side of the router. Your PC on the LAN side will have been assigned an IP other than the local host IP i.e. not 127.0.0.1 something like 10.*.*.* or 192.168.*.*. If you are using a LAN IP address assigned by the router, you might want to consider using a static IP address in case your PC's IP address changes.

comment Server performance and disk usage portal?
I had thought of Nagios, but I am looking for something self contained to the server. I'm not sure if that makes sense but it removes the need for a centralized monitoring server. Monitoring agents are installed on the servers but handled by another division. I'd like to be able to check the situation by myself.
