io_trace

Io_trace system call traces a process and reports the amount of I/O performed to each file, socket or file descriptor (stdin, stdout and stderr). It is both a useful diagnostic tool for tracking down what files are accessed as well as a benchmarking tool to see how much I/O different implementations use.
