Find out What is hogging my disk IO

Today I found my disk IO is really high for no reason. Then I want to know why.

From here I know the “iotop” command can be used to figure out the reason.

After using it I can see “gvfs-metadata” it on the top of the list.

Then from here it seems that the fix is to remove the following directory:

rm -rf ~/.local/share/gvfs-metadata
