For the last few versions of Fedora (I am on F26 x86_64) now) I have found the Disk I/O widget has not been accurate - the indicator is always much lower than it should be. I finally got around to doing a comparison today and ran my Recoll DB update which always causes the disk to thrash - with "iostat -d -x --human 5" I can see that this is case - %util is always jammed at near 100% for /dev/sda - but the graphical XFCE disk indicator for the same disk is at about 25% most of the time.
What is the difference between the two indicators? Is there a bug?
