select * from dm_io_virtual_file_stats(dbid(),null)
avg_io_stall_ms for some of my DB files by average it is 400 ms

is it possible that there is either a disk bottleneck or that high reads and writes are occurring on that drive

All DB files are in separate drives.

Is it like (Average Disk sec/read or write )> 20 ms is a IO botleneck.

Pls can anyone explain in this whether am in a right track in identifying problem.

Over 12ms is a bottleneck for average disk sec/read or write. Validate that the DMV is showing an I/O bottleneck by checking the PerfMon counters.

Spikes are okay, especially during a checkpoint. It's the sustained average over 12ms that would be worrisome. And really writes should be even lower for a threshold.
