What is SQL Server IOPS?

What is SQL Server IOPS?

IOPS is an acronym for Input/Output Operations Per Second. It’s a measure of how many physical read/write operations a device can perform in one second. IOPS are relied upon as an arbiter of storage performance. When you scale those numbers to 64KiB IOPS it works out to 1,750 64KiB IOPS for SQL Server RDS.

How do I check my SQL Server IOPS?

Determine your IOPS and throughput requirements

  1. Disk reads/sec + disk writes/sec = IOPS.
  2. Disk read bytes/sec + disk write bytes/sec = throughput.

What is IOPS in database?

If you choose an IOPS number based on the average IOPS used by your existing database, you should have sufficient IOPS for the database in most cases, but database performance will suffer at peak load.
