Drive C: Average Statistics

This report provides statistics regarding input/output operations of the system's hard drive, also known as "disk i/o". System administrators may use this report to correlate high disk usage on the server with SmarterMail activity and identify areas in which adjustments can be made.

An administrator can change the dates of the report as well as the "Step", which means whether you want to see the report by hour, day, week, month or quarter. (Based on the start and end dates -- so a quarterly report would need a full 3 months selected.) Admins can change the chart type by clicking the chart icon next to the date, or even export the report as needed. Each column in the report is sortable, either ascending or descending, and the sort can change simply by clicking the column header.

The following report items are available:

  • Read - The average size in KB/sec of disk reads.
  • Write - The average size in KB/sec of disk writes.

It's also possible to export this data in CSV format for use in other applications, such as Microsoft Excel, Google Sheets, Apple Numbers, etc. To do this, simply click the page icon in the upper right hand corner of the reports page. Once clicked, you'll be able to save the data and name the file to whatever you want.
