How can I see which device is using the disk? It looks like one is using quite some disk and I would like to know which one it is. On proxmox host udisksd takes quite some load:

752 root 20 0 8550888 7.8g 10068 R 44.0 26.5 3282:00 udisksd
 
Code:
lsblk
lists block devices and their sizes. Is it that what you mean?
 
iostat ?
```
apt install sysstat
iostat -m -x
Device r/s w/s rMB/s wMB/s rrqm/s wrqm/s %rrqm %wrqm r_await w_await aqu-sz rareq-sz wareq-sz svctm %util

Thx. that would have helped I guess but I already ended up killing the process. Didn't have the issue again thus far.
