2.0, /proc/stat: is "paging" "disk I/O"

I have a SCSI disk with my root filesystem and an IDE disk to swap
(page). Yesterday my machine pages heavily, and I was curious.

Invoking "procinfo" showed only activity for one disk. Looking into
/proc/stat I found that the disk I/O values do not contain accesses
caused by paging. I only had activity for one disk. Is that

Should "page" and "swap" be used instead?

get the wrong meaning if translated back to English, sorry.)
