I'm settling for the system monitor indicator (indicator-sysmonitor) for now since there doesn't seem to be any good alternative (for natty) at the moment... does anyone know the keyword for disk usage or network usage?

More specifically, when I go to the preferences window for the indicator I see the following string: "cpu: {cpu} mem: {mem}" What do I put in the braces if I want to see I/O or network usage?

EDIT: I couldn't handle not seeing my network and disk usage so I put together something that will show that along with the cpu. Its one of the answers to this question. It will have to do for a half a year until there is a real monitor.

Support has been added sometime after the previous answer was added.

Currently my config string is C: {cpu} | M: {mem} | N:{net}

The indicator-sysmonitor project is extremely new having first released at the end of March this year. My recommendation is to create a request on LaunchPad, here, to see if the developers would be interested in adding this capability.
