Hello all,

I have a system that becomes very slow at times.  I am pretty sure that 
the culprit is postgres doing a bunch of disk IO.  Is there anyway that I 
can measure disk IO and assign it to a specific process?  I don't believe 
that the 2.4 kernels support this.  Is there a way to add that support?  
Is is available in the 2.6 family?

Thanks greatly,
