SQL Server Tuning: Find IO wait or Virtual File Stats

Problem Statement: Script to get the virtual file waits for IO waits.
Solution: Virtual File waits are useful in identifying the IO waits occurring on any of the database file. This script is used along with SQL server wait stats script to understand the IO waits well.

SELECT Db_name(vfs.database_id)                           AS database_name,

vfs.FILE_ID,
