If you look in cmd/xfsmisc in the cvs tree you will find a script
called xfs_stats.pl, make this an executable and it will dump all
sorts of stats out of xfs. There is text further down the file which
explains what the numbers mean.

I have come across a command called iostat which you can get here:
http://perso.wanadoo.fr/sebastien.godard/

which will report io requests nicely.
