For the raw disk data, have a look at the statistics functions in
libgeom(3).  You can use the source code for gstat(8) to get a better idea
how to drive it.

I don't know of any published API for vdev-level ZFS statistics and,
unfortunately, "zpool iostat" only supports "humanized" output, which makes
it difficult to use them as input to further monitoring.  There are some
ARC statistics under sysctl kstat.zfs.misc
