This is a popular misconception about Glance. The disk utilization line
at the top of glane only represents your "hottest" (most heavily
utilized) disk. It is not an average of all disk activity. Change to
the I/O By Disk screen and you should be able to find a single disk that
shows the same utilization as the bar. You have to check I/O in many
differnent places within glance to get a feel of an I/O or disk
