How to find which file is under heavy use/IO

GioMac asked:

Application on the Linux server is using several large files of 10-20 GB in size. It is constantly writing and reading on all of them, I want to see usage details: which file is under heavy use, see bandwidth, operation count etc. Is there a way to do that?

I answered:

You mean something like iotop?
