You can use either sys-process/iotop or app-admin/sysstat.

Also sys-process/atop, but that's more of a long term logging tool.

sys-process/nmon would be ideal, very flexible and has easy to read output. Press "d" to display disk stats and then press "." if you just want it to show currently active drives.

Moved from Multimedia to Other Things Gentoo since the topic isn't related to sound or video in any way.
