This is exactly why the time stamp is needed, I want to look at disk 
accesses that happen in rapid succession, that is my definition of a 
"burst" - a burst of activity.  So I really don't need to log 
timestamps, I just need to keep track of when the last access happened 
and if is was close enough to be considered part of the burst.  And then 
log bursts.
