The Disk Gremlin fills up a target block device (specified by the filesystem on which it is mounted) by writing to files at the destination specified by
--dir. The number of files written directly corresponds to the number of
|Dir||-d path||False||1.8.0||The root directory for the IO attack.|
|Workers||-w int||False||1.8.0||The number of diskwrite workers to run concurrently.|
|Block Size||-b int||False||1.8.0||Number of Kilobytes (KB) that are read/written at a time.|
|Volume Percentage||-p <0-100>||False||1.8.0||Percent of Volume to fill (0100).|
|Length||-l int||False||1.8.0||The length of the attack (seconds).|
Azure Windows instances may throttle disk I/O such that large disk attacks will take an excessive amount of time to complete.
