Your intent is confused, the subject says "disk" which I agree doesn't reflect 
what's happening and may miss 99% of what iostat shows, your text says "network" 
which is unlikely to show disk activity.

In the case of network, mine works, in the case of disk, only shows some 
activity, looks like it may be monitoring things at the filesystem not the devices.
