How to get Task Managers Total IO Reads / Writes RRS feed

  • General discussion

  • Hi

    In task manager you can select total IO Operations (read / write), however under perfmon you can't, you can only get the average.

    I want to get access to total IOPs. Is this available under WMI or other ?

    Task manager must have access to eother the total, or the change since its last read ?

  • Hi,

    I would like to confirm if you want to access the IO Operations in task manager or under perfmon.

    Here is the steps to add total IOPs in perfmon.

    1. Open perfmon, right click counter, select properties.
    2. Select Data tab, click Add, expand Process, find IO Read Operation/sec and click Add.
    3. Use the same way to add IO Write Operation/sec.

    Your feedback does not address "total reads", not reads per second or any other xxxx reads / second

  • Hi,

    Run wbemtest, connect the namespace root\cimv2

    Click Query… and enter query as:

    Select WriteOperationCount from Win32_Process where name = "notepad.exe"

    In the result list, double click the result, and you will find the IO writes for this process under WriteOperationCount.

  • Thanks

    I was wanting it to be overall machine, but i can investigate in the WNI namespace.

    My fault for not making this clear.

    I found http://www.nirsoft.net/utils/disk_counters_view.html which could be used..
