Disk I/O being overloaded
I am using Zabbix to monitor my droplet and I am now getting warnings fairly regularly of the Disk I/O being overloaded which, in my Zabbix configuration, is triggered by the cpu.util.iowait metric being over 20%. Is there something I can tune in my droplet to make the I/O more efficient or is this a matter of the load on the host server due to the other droplets hosted there? The droplet is running CentOS.
